Above is my sketch of the famous "Flat Irons" mountain formation. There were lots of hikers going up and down the trails in front of me.
This next sketch is a short distance outside of Boulder. Jenni was driving around one day and came across this terrific "dog run". It was a bit risky sitting out there with the dogs off-leash! Some of them were just curious...others thought I was in their yard and would just stand behind me barking ferociously! (One of the more "fierce" ones was a light gray standard poodle like my friend, Joyce, has.) Most of the times the owners would be right there and make them leave me alone. I just laughed and talked calmly to the dogs...they were no worse than small children who nearly sit in my lap when they see me drawing!
The next sketch was done at the Denver Botanical Gardens. I was tucked away under the shade of some trees. Unfortunately some of my drawing got a bit "off"...but you just keep on going and make the best of it when using ink pens!
I tried to give Jenni a break from having to hang out with me the whole weekend, so I wandered around the neighborhood near her apartment. This big old sycamore tree was fun to draw...love sketching trees!!
This rather weathered motorcycle was in the same apartment complex as Jenni's. I was sketching this around 6:45 in the morning, because I couldn't sleep any longer.
The last drawing was of a little solar powered three-wheel "car". I guess you have to call it a car...more like a little go-cart! But I love the curves and shape of the thing. Jenni said that they remove the panels on the front when taking the little car for a spin. But she said it's been sitting there forever. Maybe keeping the car in the shade is NOT the best way to charge it up!
