23rd World Wide Sketch Crawl Start
ink and watercolor
It was my job to direct Barbara to Rudy's barbeque for lunch after spending the morning sketching at the LaSalle Hotel coffee shop. I started sketching this young man, riding on a tool box in back of a pick up truck, missed the turn, and it ended up taking us an hour to find Rudy's. I couldn't have read the signs, anyway. This town is growing and changing so much that I can't find the landmarks that have always been here!
Joni and Ashton joined us for lunch. I gave them paper and pencil to draw something for Sketch Crawl and this is what they did. Joni thought this sign, admonishing people to clean up, was hilarious. It does fit, I guess, for people who are away from home for the first time, in college, etc. And for some older folks who forget the lessons they learned. Ashton did a quick No Smoking sign. The last time we were here, he laughed at the sign that said No Smoking, right next to the fireplace! And, considering that the food is smoked, I thought that was a funny sign, too.
Couple Eating Barbeque Barbara
Barbara sketched this man who was having lunch with his wife. He detected her drawing and they stopped to look at what she was doing. We told them about Sketch Crawl and gave them a flyer. I think they were impressed.
Oops!.. They Left Barbara
Barbara was sketching and her subjects left. A problem we encounter when drawing from life. Our subjects often tend to move!

I am a Texas artist working in a variety of media. My style is basically expressionistic with somewhat of a cartoon style, at times. I tend to work large, but am currently working smaller, from my home. I hope to share some of my memories, experiences, stories, and thoughts through this blog including my journey through Macular Degeneration as seen through an artist's eyes. I hope that you will join my group, and let me know if you are interested in purchasing my work. Maybe something that I post will touch you and bring out a shared memory, experience, or even a laugh or two.
