It seems like we are waiting a lot more than we used to at airports lately. The flight home was delayed about an hour and a half. I wonder what this is all about. Is it because they can???
anywho, it could have been much worse. At least I got home the night i was supposed to. I could have been stuck overnight I suppose.

Rachel and I met this past Saturday to sketch. Our second and last stop was at the rail station.
It's so interesting there. Old trains, railroad spikes on the ground and big old brick buildings.
This is the sketch I started. It's not finished just yet. I'm thinking about scanning /printing on watecolor paper. There are a few different things i want to try out. Maybe i'll post those...maybe.

My sketches from the 4th...the ones on the bottom were done while waiting for the fire works to start. It was gettinge dark when i star ted. By then end I couldn t see what I was drawing. The one on the left bottom is my favorite. it's hard to see in the small size though.
I bought a "g" from an old printers set at an antique shop last week. I tried an old stamp pad but it didn't seem to work well. I then painted the letter with paint. Looks like I need to find a better stamp pad :) Then Riley wanted to help me draw...so there's her mark on the right.

The first attempt at the spike/ spring i found down at the railroad station. I've found I needed more patience the night i drew this. I felt a bit distracted and definitely should have let paint dry between layers. THere's always next time... :)
