Sketches on the Road and Goat Photos

We are on the road, headed for New Mexico. This was modeled after a cowboy having lunch in San Angelo, Texas. I didn't sketch in the restaurant, so the best I could do from memory. Hats are hard to do even when you can see them. Ha.

This sketch is on the highway between San Angelo and Big Spring. There is sooooo much mesquite. No leaves in the winter time. Cedar and pear cactus decorate the landscape as well. (I realized this after I posted it that it can be #7, view out my window (car window) for the Scavenger Hunt. That is good!)

These goats were near Brownfield. There were so many little kids. They looked like puppies and they were all hungry and trying to eat. Some successful.

Here are the sheep dogs that were watching over them. They were sure watching me. They moved the goats away from the fence.

I meant to post a comment on this the other day when I first saw it but then went along my merry way. Ah well. I wanted to say that I really liked the highway sketch. And, that the hat looked good to me. And (#2), that Jennie would love the photos of the dogs. I'm gonna have to make sure she sees it.

Thanks, hats are a pain! After I did the sketch from memory, I was remembering Richard Rudnicki from Nove Scotia, his weekly sketch is always of something from the day before.

You Dad says those must be goat dogs, not sheep dogs. Picky, picky...
