and finally...waiting in the airport

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.

waiting on the plane...

There seemed to be some sort of problem with the brand new Jetblue plane. So we sat at the gate for a bit. As usual i'm glad I had my sketchbook.

Waiting for chinese food

I saw this on the side walk while waiting for my food to be's a little washed out from the scanner.

Rail Station

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.

On the road home...


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.


Drawing in the car on the way to Boston for the holiday


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 there's her mark on the right.

A random Monday nights sketches

Railroad Spike / Spring

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... :)


This was from the sketchcrawl. I could not find a scanner that would read the pencil. The one we have here at work did the trick.
