We (the Tigers, that is) played the Mets again last evening and we put up a better showing, but still they waaaay outplayed us. Tonight Verlander pitches and it is hoped that things will be much different. At any rate, I needed something to do besides watch the game, so I got out my journal and decided to do a few sketches. I must remember to do this more often.
|As you can see, I continue to struggle with perspective.|
And, since you were good enough to look at those, I have some of nature's art to share with you:
I think I'd like to try a small watercolor today and maybe work on more books. I went up to the Maple Street Mall with the hubster yesterday and found more old books for my class in August (when I have the flyer finalized I will share it here) and now need to take more drawing paper to the printer to have it cut to size.
Summer is getting really busy. This weekend I am going to Battle Creek to meet up with Dee for some outdoor sketching; on Sunday we are taking Zoë to Aunt Jan's for a cookout; the following Thursday I am getting together with Nancy for a fun and arty day; the next weekend we are taking the four girls and Zoë's Mom and Dad up to the Leelanau peninsula; the last weekend in July we have a wedding in Madison, Wisconsin; and somewhere in between I want to get over to visit my sister in the Benton Harbor/St. Joe area.
Can you believe June is on the way out already??? Didn't it just get here?
