Shoulder Sketch and Baseball note

I didn't sketch at the game today. After we went shopping and I sketched this from memory while waiting for Gene. This father and two children were a couple of rows in front of us. You could tell they were family from the identical shoulders. All three were very slim with some bone structure showing. :) About a 5 minute sketch with a ball point pen.

The Longhorns swept the Virginia Commonwealth Rams. It is nice they came to Austin. I'm sure it was intimidating and exciting. A great weekend as it was the inauguration of the renewed stadium, Disch-Falk Field, and there were so many unusual things going on. Today the Longhorn Pep Band was there to play the fight song, national anthem and The Eyes of Texas. That sure ads to the excitement. I wish they would use more of the band music during the game. It peps everyone up.... Longhorns won today, 10-2. Both teams played different players. I suppose the Rams wanted to give as many players as possible a chance to play in front of a crowd. We attended one of their games a few years ago and there were about 50 people there, including our group of 10 or so. :) In Austin there were over 18,000 fans in the three days. You can check out the story, stats and photos on the official page and look at some great stuff by Joanna. Be sure to look at Joanna's photos to see daughter Jennie with Bevo yesterday. Super photo!

Well, Jo, I can't speak baseball, but I can comment on the fun drawings... I love that you sketch while you're out at a game! You are an artist down to your toenails!

Susan, hi! Sketching is guilt driven. I always feel I should be doing art, but we do have fun with baseball. In my genes. My Mom was a Dodger fan. We don't to professional baseball, but love the kids at UT! I have sketched very little at games, but decided to do it this year.

How was your opening? Guess I better go check your blog.....

Cute sketch!! Yes, their shoulders are so similar.

Joan, They were an interesting family. They looked like they were having fun, too.
