I started off the year 2015 with the desire to sketch and post my sketches regularly. I joined the A Drawing a Day group - an online drawing group - and have pretty much drawn daily since Jan. 1, exactly a week ago today. On day one I drew a church in west Oakland. Couldn't find the signage but the church is located at 8th and Jefferson streets.

Today marks the third week since I broke my wrist and changed my life, temporarily. Luckily I didn't break the other wrist which is my dominant hand. Despite that dominance thing, however, daily life has been turned upside down. I learned that I can't cut an orange which of course meant I had to eat that slice of cake sitting in the icebox. Darn!
I can't drive - doctor's orders. I can't work - my bosses orders. It isn't all bad, in fact I can catch up on my reading, spend more time with my cats and sketch. So
I'll try to document this journey in my sketchbooks. And try to remember to post the drawings here.

My sketchcrawl group met at Brennan's in Berkeley last night (Oct. 22). Brennan's is a sports bar. Cathy, another sketcher, suggested this venue especially since the SF Giants were playing in the World Series. There was a big crowd watching several of the TV's. At the beginning folks were shouting and their approval as they watched their Beloved Team. Soon the frenzy subsided. Damn those KC Royals!
