SKETCHBOOK: "Sonic Tree"

I made a huge sacrifice today.  Instead of vacuuming and dusting as planned, I decided to enjoy another gorgeous day outside.  This gnarly beauty is on a steep slope next to a Sonic burger place near my home.  I had to climb over a fence by the parking lot to get this view.  Dust bunnies will have to wait.

SKETCHBOOK: "Waitin' For Another Oil Change"

This morning I took my Ford in for it's regular maintenance check.  Here are a few characters I saw while waiting.  The three "Hearing Aid Boys" were at the McDonald's up the street.  The "Big Guy With Tiny Phone" and the "Serious Reader" were in the waiting room at the dealership.  I'm usually pretty sneaky when sketching.  The "Reader" locked her eyeballs on me as I was looking at her face. I looked away at the tv for a bit...then she went back to reading...close call!  :)

Adding one more that I sketched in my backyard when I was done with the car.  The weather is SO nice for a change, I had to stay outside for a bit.

Since it's warming up some, I was able to sit on my back porch and catch this view this afternoon. The sketch is for today's "Virtual Sketch-crawl" with a group I'm part of..."Urban Sketchers Midwest". I guess this would technically be a "Suburban Sketch". smile emoticon
