Sketches at the Airport, Birthday Girl

We had a layover in Dallas on the way to Albuquerque, so I sketched a little. It was the only time I had. On the flights going we were talking and planning. On the way back I was in a middle seat with no room to even work a crossword puzzle, much less sketch.

This was a look out the window. Then a little girl came by, she was so cute. I sure didn't capture that. :(

A few of the people around the waiting area. The little girl with the pony tail on top had on a green fuzzy jacket. She doesn't look young. Fun and the time passed quickly, though. Sketched with a Micron 05 pen.

Then we arrived in Albuquerque. Saturday was the big day for the party. This is the birthday girl at 29, she says. I wish we could all look that good at 92. Amazing!

Happy Birthday Gran. Love the shirt. The words would fit most of us.

Jo Castillo said...

JeanneG, hi there! Thanks for Mom Frances. The shirt was fun. Daughter, Sylvia, made it for her. I think I am re-tired every day. :) Hope you have a great Christmas.
