Still here!

My laptop hard drive crashed the last week of January, and I am just getting back to speed with a new one.  So, that's the reason for no new posts in the month of February!
I have been doing some sketching, though, and will get things posted as soon as everything dies down at work some (we've had lots of visitors observing classrooms and the school in general).
Thanks for checking back after my long absence...

Alan Streets

I saw a documentary on schizophrenic painter Alan Streets yesterday on Ovation TV.  What a wonderful outlet of his pent-up energy.  Check out his website:

At First Tee

Some students and coaches waiting for golf instruction at The First Tee of Augusta.

One of my students (with AWESOME hair!)

When I saw her hair, I knew she had to be a subject of a sketch!

Classic cars from 1996

Here are a few drawings I did as a teenager (!) in 1996.  I now own the red Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Veloce!

Grandma's elephant

A little out of focus, I know.  It is a small sketch of a plant stand that used to sit in my Grandma's living room. After she passed in 2000, my parents got it, and now it sits in their living room.  This is done in pen and watercolor, and it about 4x4".  I love how it turned out!

What do you think about the orange?

Dinner with my parents

My mom and dad cooked!  She got the recipe out of the USA magazine that comes with the paper, I think.  It is called Florentine Penne, and has 8 grams of fiber!  Yummy, but may have needed a butter sauce, or a real light tomato sauce.
