Sketch Crawl in Calvert, Texas

Waiting for Zamykal Kolache Shop to Open
Calvert, Texas
This was an early start to our day of sketching for the World Wide Sketch Crawl. Barbara stopped by the kolache shop in Calvert to bring us some kolaches to enjoy for breakfast. We had strawberry and cherry, and were they good! Fresh out of the oven, too.
While she waited on the shop to open, she got in some sketching of Highway 6, down the center of Calvert.
(Too bad that we weren't into art and sketching what we saw back in the days when Calvert was a busy town, especially on Saturdays. All those wagons and cars parked on the street, and people crowding the sidewalks and stores would be something to see now. We just have to try to remember what it was like and work on those things from memory. It all seemed too ordinary to even take a picture of, at the time.)
She traveled on to Bryan to pick up my grandson and me, and we all went downtown to work for the event.
If you have some sketches that you did that day, I would love to see them and share them, if you would like. Just let me know.
I'm still having trouble adding more than one image and, according to the help section, other people are having problems too. I may just have to post some individual things, as that does seem to work. Maybe I should try a slideshow, but I need individual urls, I think, to post them on the Sketch Crawl site.

Yeah, I'm so glad you did this. Next year, I hope I can play too!

I hope that you can play, too! I guess that we did pretty well with about 6 people that I know of sketching in downtown Bryan. If you look at the Sketch Crawl website, you can see what some of the others did in other places. Pretty neat.
I'm ready for the next one!
