Owl Nest

I spotted this "screeching house" while Pam and I were hanging out at the botanical garden. I was attracted to the way the light kissed the leaves and the side of the structure. I completed the sketch on site and added paint later. The garden has grown even more luscious due to the drought ending in recent years.

Different Clouds Passing

Whenever I can, I get outside to sketch clouds. I work on small pieces of paper or canvas. I rarely if ever enlarge them. I like the challenge of getting them to be transparent.

Supermarket Onions

I bought these onions because I wanted to paint them. I eventually threw them out. I should have made a stew or stir fry with them. Or, I could have planted them.

Caught Lurking

My lens found this black cat lurking behind a house in Commerce. I liked the light, of course and the contrast of the dark feline.

Scratch The Surface

We were getting ready to leave Red Bud Isle and I decided to sketch this tree that was in the lake. I was attracted to the color contrast with the water.
