We had lunch at a Mexican restaurant on the
Fourth of July. I brought along my art journal
to sketch while we waited for our food. In
theory, drawing would keep me from eating
too many tortilla chips while we waited!
Our food came so quickly, however,
that I had to finish my pen sketch after we finished
our meal, and my hubby had to wait on me.
When I started sketching the planter, I didn't
realize it was a Turtle, until we were leaving, and
I walked over to see the other side. The people
at the nearest table thought I was crazy, I think...
The sombrero was black velvet decorated with
silver and white sequins. I added the
drawing of the turtle's head from memory when
I got home, as well as the Watercolors.
So my Turtle is the T for T Tuesday this week...
We also went to a concert in a local park,
presented by our community band. The musical
selections were all patriotic and we quite enjoyed
it! It is almost as much fun watching the people
as it is enjoying the music...I think the attendance
of my nephews brought down the median age
of the audience ~ most of us were seniors!
After doing a web search, I believe the
distinctive bark on the tree I drew is
a Shagbark Hickory tree. There were a
few hickory nuts being blown down by the
wind that evening, but there were no
casualties, that I know of...
Above, this week's Documented Life Project
challenge #27: add a Crossword, Sudoku,
or Word-Find puzzle to your page. Another
opportunity to go with a black and white
composition that I enjoy! Collage includes
scrapbook papers (music & crossword)
magazine clippings, and my own drawings.
In keeping with T Tuesday, I should include
a photo or drawing of my beverage of choice,
even if it isn't tea. Joining Elizabeth for
T Tuesday, and sharing a drawing of
my pink travel mug, in progress...
not sure what else to include on the page.
Something will come to me...
