My Dentist

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.

Moxie Mirror

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.

A Walk in the Woods

backpacks-2

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??

Hwy 55

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.
