Hanging in the strong tropical sunlight, this humble rag rug shone like a jewel.

Blue Boat

We are off to Sri Lanka via Virtual Paintout this month. I decided to plunge in and sketch everything that catches my eye, and this was the first. I haven't looked around the island much yet but I have noticed the men tend to wear wrap skirts or very loose pants, while the women tend to wear long, flowing dresses. I'm hoping to find the time to sketch more of these colorful garments.

Dad Under a Salmon Sculpture

Dad and I spent a wonderful afternoon at the local park recently, people watching and sketching. Afterwards, we went to Jose's Tequila Factory for happy hour and enjoyed some delicious margaritas and super nachos. A perfect day all around.

Hoffman Farm Store

Found this farm store while on a sunny drive out in the countryside of Oregon a couple of years ago. Painting it yesterday brought back the memories of a happy day with family.

Path, Blue Mountains

This sketch is from a virtual walk in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales, Australia. I was hoping to see some wildlife but no luck. I'll keep looking.
