Last week I spent 2 1/2 hours in the dentist’s chair. What I learned was shocking. There’s the mother Grizzly Bear, the Great White Shark, and Katy, my dental hygenist. All three are vicious and blood thirsty. One of these I have to face again in 6 months…I’m weighing my chances with the bear.
This is a cool, big old looking mirror at a Moxie Java coffee shop. I really liked the old mirror against the brick wall and the reflection in it of the front door. This was a “quick sketch” just to keep in practice working at a quick pace.
I have absolutely no idea why I sketched this or what I was thinking. It looks like a place I’d like to go though!
A couple of friends of mine went on a hike along the Appalachian Trail, took a pic. of their packs at Max Patch, NC. They hiked from there 22 miles and 2 days later, to Hot Springs, NC. Then requested a sketch of their pic. While I get a lot of pleasure in sketching, I find it nearly embarrassing to try to capture the beauty of nature. Who can do that??
On a recent day trip to McCall, while driving, the river right there a few yards from the highway, I took a mental snapshot and drew this from that picture in my head. Yes, I imagine in cartoony-sketches, which is fun.
Highway 55 North from Boise to McCall. Probably my all-time favorite drives and I’ve driven this a few hundred times over the years and it never gets old. Winding along the Payette River thru the mountains, raging whitewater next to the highway, snow capped mountains, wildlife, ascending to over 5,280 feet by the time you get to McCall, complete with crisp, cool clean air and the overwhelming scent of pine trees.
