SKETCHBOOK: "Sides of Buildings"

Had to get some work done on my car that took a couple of hours. So I wandered around and did these two sketches this morning. The salmon colored building baffled me...why put that weird little balcony up there with no way to get down?

SKETCHBOOK: "Earth Movers"


I decided to return to where I was sketching last week, on this gorgeous Sunday morning...my church's Youth House lot, which will be torn down in the near future. The church sold the land, so I've enjoyed drawing the earth movers while they've been working. Below is the sketch I did last Sunday, while sitting under the shade of a mimosa tree.

NEW PAINTINGS: I won some ribbons!


I am happy to report that I won a second place and third place ribbon for two of my three paintings for the STEMS Plein Air painting event. I was not aware that there was a cash prize for each, so I was delighted when I attended the opening of the gallery last night! I also sold one ("Tomahawk Creek"), with hopes of selling more while the show is up for a month. My daughter, Courtney, came by with my grandson, Jackson. He was more excited about the refreshment table than the paintings.
