Sketches and Mayflower

This truck was in front of our room at the hotel. I hadn't seen a Mayflower truck in ages. I thought they were gone. Remember the jingle??

I sketched a little out front of the stadium on Friday. These are done with a regular Pilot ball point pen in another sketchbook given me by Regina. Very little and quick, but here they are.

I also sketched the wall at the restaurant where we dined last night, also very quick. At least something for art.

Hook-em Horns!

I like the baseball and restaurant sketches. Last year I sketched the patio at Joe T Garcia's in Ft. Worth. Later I tried to paint it to catch the vibrant colors. I probably needed another margarita to put me in the same mood.

Jo: Really enjoyed the baseball sketches.

I love the quick sketches, Jo. The people ones are very simple but show a lot in regard to pose and expression. You're inspiring!!!

Bag Blog, maybe I need more margaritas as well. I'm hesitant to draw people in live situations. :)

Thanks, fishing guy. Baseball is fun.

Regina, thank you. Amazing outside the stadium how many folks were phoning "home" with the results of the games.
