The Right Hand of King Stephen I

I have to admit it was kinda weird to see King Stephen's right hand in the chapel of this Basilica - but it was still a very nice place to visit. I just had to sit for a while and sketch with my right hand after my walk to the reliquary. 

Stephen on his horse at Fishermen's Bastion

I was quite taken with this statue to King Stephen I of Hungary. This entire location is super to visit.  

A sketch from a recent hike

We hike a lot around the area where we live in Colorado. I never tire of these kinds of rock formations.

Face sketching

Trying an experiment to see if I can draw faces. So far so good. This guy, Robert Falcon Scott was involved in an Antarctic venture. He is mentioned in one of my many books about Earnest Shackleton. 


Sketches from Malta

We spent a week in Malta hosting a conference for Christian school administrators. It was fun to find new things to sketch. 


The Schotanus Guesthouse

This was fun to sketch and to add a bit of watercolor. We had a wonderful holiday here in April 2014.

Adelboden Kirch

One of our favorite places in the world!! We had a wonderful visit with some locals while I sketched on this day. 

Chai Tree Sketch

I love this artistic metal tree in the center of Rift Valley Academy in Kijabe Kenya. Notice the tea mugs hanging from the tree limbs. RVA has "Chai Time" every school day. Very cool tradition. It was fun to draw this tree. 

On the way to Kenya

Time to sketch these chairs in the airport lounge. 
 I had a bit of time to sketch the iconic Fraumunster in Zurich, Switzerland

Big Guy on the Airplane

This is what you sketch when you are on a long flight. This was a big guy who needed room on the flight.

Watercolor from Paramaribo, Suriname

I loved visiting this amazing cathedral in Paramaribo, Suriname. It's the world's largest wooden cathedral. It was beautifully remodeled with funds from the EU. 
 This is what the cathedral looked like prior to the renovations.

A beautiful day in Manitou Springs, CO. I was able to find a few moments to unstring the bow and sketch this monument to Mr. Wheeler.

Sketching at the Dr's office

Had to sketch this scene while waiting for Sandee at the chiropractor. Little Sedona wasn't feeling well and stayed with her grandma under the desk.
 Sedona perked up when I showed her my sketch.

Waiting at the airport. Time to Sketch

On our way to Bogota, Colombia. We had a stop over in Houston, TX. We sat in the lounge and I had a chance to sketch my shoes. :-)

CS Philharmonic Free Concert and Fireworks

A beautiful 4th of July evening. The concert was fantastic! Thank you Colorado Springs and Philharmonic. 


MLK Sketching

This was fun to sketch. Funner still, was interacting with two different student groups who came by to watch me sketch the memorial. One from Maud, Texas and one from Seattle, WA. It was a blast to talk to them.
