May is Mothers' Month

My mother and I - when we were sweet sixteen.
After all these years I finally noticed a likeness!

No Promises...

...but the Berkeley Rose Garden now lives in my sketchbook.

The New Money!

Look what I got from my daughter ( for Mothers' Day!  Obviously Jane La Fazio has gone into the banking business...or do you suppose Holle cleverly raided Jane's blog?  I won't tell.  Part of my next class is paid for!

What Is it?

Went sketching in a salvage yard in Berkeley.  Bet you can't guess what this ancient contraption on the left was used for...



You would have seen it next to you in the dentist's chair!  I showed it to my dentist and he said it reminded him of when he went to school.

Art Alive SDMA

Sketched at Art Alive today before we were so sweetly interrupted by a lovely woman museum attendant who informed us we need a 'sketching permit' and can only use pencil or crayon - no ink or watercolor brush, not even the water-containing brushes which need no spillable liquid.  Too bad.  No photos either, even without flash.  It's a hard life.

The Art Alive flower exhibit has some lovely pieces.  This one won second prize.  I had time to color in the background painting and my idea was to superimpose the flower arrangement in ink on the spot.  When things came to a halt I had to hastily pencil it in and failed to do it justice later at home, but the experience is recorded!

Not Harbor Island

 This sketch is called that because it's where I was but it doesn't look like that! I got a little OCD on the buildings and couldn't stop until I ruined 'em.  You know how that goes...
