San Francisco 2

Day 2 found us eating again - we had to have breakfast! This little joint had good breakfast offerings cooked by a cute little old Greek man.

We started our San Francisco marathon journey by eating some delicious food at Dottie's True Blue Cafe on Jones.

Paris 6

Goodbye Blogpage Readers. I will be out of town for...a bit. I'll have lots of new fun sketches to show off when I return.

Paris 3 - Versailles & Back

I drew this while we waited for the train to Versailles - the wrong train.

In case I need to find my way back?

Back on the train, with mementos of paying to pee.

At the restaurant "Chartier" - I didn't have my camera with me, but I wanted to remember the restaurant. However, I did not think to pull out the sketchbook until after I'd had half a bottle of wine.

Paris 2

These are from the fabulous Rodin Museum. It was cold, so I drew the gardens while looking out a window inside the museum, but "Le Penseur" was outside and boy was it cold. Cold cold cold. I drew it while sitting on a bench, sort of between some bushes, and another tourist walked up to the sculpture to sit in the "Thinker" pose and have his picture taken. He didn't see us sitting on the bench between the bushes at first, and when he did he got embarrassed and ran off without getting a funny picture taken. Stupid American!

11/24/05 - Thanksgiving Day
Around this time last year we were planning our trip to Paris, so I thought I'd share some sketches from the trip. This was from our first full day there - Thanksgiving Day. Or as the French call it, Thursday.

Calgary 8-12

This was the best exhibit I've seen in a long time. And this is where I admit to the full extent of my obsessiveness, as I let the whole internet see how I documented every detail of every painting in the show.
