As sketchbooks go, this one has filled fairly quickly, with life— still and moving around me—as the subject.
Another back yard painting made with waning daylight:
and a quick horizontal yard painting another day.
Pen sketches during swim lessons…
And above the pool, a hillside with gangly palm trees…
Later, sketches in other back yards made while traveling:
and from out the car window…
Then, back at home, the wild life around me:
And last but hardly least, some guest sketchers made these:
and a collaboration drawing
And now, just seven pages more to go, and if it gets done before school starts on Monday, I can really call it “The Summer (of 2011) Sketchbook.”
