Excited and looking forward to the third class I will be taking in Sketchbook Skool.
I drew Danny Gregory talking about third semester called
"Storytelling". One can take any of the classes in any order they want.
Some I believe start this month and some in October.

I like to think that my blog tells a story ... the story of what I am doing in my life ...
For instance I drew these folks at a Starbucks late last week ...
... and then a couple of days later I drew at another Starbucks in our home town ... where I found these girls studying from books and laptops both!
A few days later found us at the bank where we had to wait a while to talk to a representative. These folks were waiting too. So I drew them. They were not together, as they appear in my drawing. I started with her, and she got up and left before I even got to her face ... then he sat down and I made him fit on my page making them look quite familiar with one another. Sometimes I do match making in my art journals.
I draw just about everywhere now. This day I was on the phone at my desk at work so I drew on a piece of copy paper and used the ink pen I found there to draw some of the things on my desk while I talked and listened on the phone.
Yesterday was the birthday of three of my grandchildren! Our grand daughter in Oregon, turned 21, and the twins turned ten. We had the good fortune to be able
to be invited to a family gathering here, starting with picking the kids up from their school in the afternoon and taking them to their house where we gave them our gifts. It was fun seeing them made happy with simple things like a glue gun! (I thought my grand daughter was going to become unglued over that gift she was so excited!) And ski gloves and playing cards and art and maze books. They are easy to please.
After they opened their gifts they had to finish their homework, which gave me a good opportunity to draw them. They are getting so grown up ... we remember back to when they were born pre-maturely, and taken from their mom, my daughter, by Caesarian birth, weighting a mere 2 pounds (him) and 3 pounds (her) respectfully. Now they are fully formed, bright, happy, talented kids who are stars in so many ways!
Such joy they give us as grandparents. We ended the evening with a lovely dinner out at a Japanese restaurant, the kids choice; and later back at their house a home made German Chocolate cake made by their dad, that looked good, but we just watched them eat it.
Happy Paint Party Friday! Thanks for your visits to my blog. Your visits and comments warm my heart more than I can say.
