waiting at the pharmacy

What better way to spend my time while waiting. (I think I've worked out the problems with my posting.)

january sketch program

This month my Tuesday Evening Sketch group decided to begin the year by sketching something every day. Now maybe I can make sketching a habit - something I do without thinking like breathe.

church and food

Happy 2012! I've been drawing and sketching like mad so far this year thanks to a sketch-a-day activity proposed by my Tuesday night sketch group. By the end of this month I shall have 31 sketches. The first sketches I did were so lame that they will never see the light of day. I only posted two sketches for the eight days of January that I felt ok about.  Appropriately these sketches are about two major elements in my life - church and food. The bell is circa 1902 and rests outside Sacred Heart Church in Oakland. I didn't quite capture it but I was close. The pears are in the kitchen at my house growing riper but the minute as I type this. Yes, I know I should be eating them instead of drawing them but my appetite for drawing is stronger than my appetite for eating.
