2011-06-26 Otsiningo Park

Found 2 feathers today - the obsessive in me wants to sterilize them before sketching, lol.
I often walk here, there is a lovely view of the river and there are often Canadian geese.


Yum, strawberry shortcake! Notice the strawberries are the only thing not "store-made". I do like convenience. :)

2011-06-24 Banyan tree

I have always been fascinated by these trees. From Wikipedia - "In Hinduism, the banyan tree is considered sacred. God Shiva is nearly always depicted sitting in silence under the banyan. It is thought of as perfectly symbolizing eternal life due to its seemingly unending expansion."
Used my new noodler's flex pen (as so many others have acquired recently!). It seems to take 'forever' for the ink to dry. Am I just impatient, or maybe my lines are too thick? Suggestions are welcome!

On the beach

While we were relaxing, about 40 kids showed up and parked their towels right next to us. About 6 or 7 years old, they all ran screaming & laughing into the ocean. So much joy! Here are some of their towels.

2011 0614 Abandoned warehouse

The sign says "Century Warehouse" but it looks more like "Turn of the Century", and not 2000! On a bleak grey day, I found the broken windows appealing to draw.

Heavy Equipment 20110613

This was near the railroad tracks on my way home from work. Does anyone know what the correct name is? These all look like big machines to me, but they are also fun to draw!

2011 0604 Mah Jong tile necklace

My niece found this and sent it to me - she knows how much I enjoy playing the game!

2011 0604 After a nap

Yesterday was unseasonably cool, and it rained in the afternoon. What else could I do but take a short blissful nap?
