January 16 and 24 Quick Sketches

                                          I sat in my car and quickly sketched this as I waited for an office to open.
                                          The temperature was 10F outside this morning.

                                                         This poor little Holly tree was so severely and brutally pruned to install
                                                         a new underground power line. It's next to a parking lot at the
                                                         "Corpening Building".

Last Week's Quick Drawings

All of these were done in my small (3 1/2" X 5 1/2") moleskine sketchbook with a ballpoint pen.
Having fun trying to capture what's around me as I go about my day.

"January 2 and 3"

A quick-sketch done in our living room on a page in my new 3 1/2" X 5 1/2" Moleskine sketchbook with a ballpoint pen.  I usually don't sketch this small unless I'm just doodling on something while talking on the phone.  I just bought this sketchbook and intend to carry it in my pocket so that I can take advantage of "free" moments in my life to capture what is before me.

This lovely Amaryllis (as red as Santa's suit!), a Christmas gift from Don and Don, is growing on our kitchen counter.  My quick-sketch done mid-day today with a ballpoint pen.
