This is the Bridge of Lions in St Augustine FL. They are restoring this bridge and have a temporary bridge next to it to use. My folks keep me updated on the progress. The lions are in storage. Safe and sound I hear. It's a beautiful bridge but a bottleneck for traffic especially when the drawbridge is up. If interesed in buying email me the title.

It was cold this week so I pulled out one of my watercolor sketches I did in St Augustine FL last May. I was standing by the Castillo de Marcos fort looking out toward the bridge at low tide as you can see. St. Augustine is my favorite place in FL. Plenty of sites to see plus my folks live there. Also there are some really good local artists exhibiting in the galleries. If you want to buy it email me the title.
A pen drawing of the front of the James Robertson Building from the lot behind Hume Fogg HS, Nashville. Some pencil shading added. This area is a panhandler area. It is down the street from our wonderful Public Library. There is a nice park in front but the taxpayers cannot enjoy it though without being pestered by the panhandlers who congregate there.
Nashville's downtown Library is one of the finest buildings downtown and a first rate library. Our Frist Art Museum and new Schermerhorn Symphony Hall are great new additions.

I drove to the store the other evening at dusk with the moon out and the business lights just coming on. The cows were doing their thing. I locked the scene in my memory and painted it before I went to bed. I always like the light at this time of day. If interested in buying email me.

I started this on our wet Christmas afternoon in downtown Nashville. (Go Predators!) In no time flat panhandlers arrived like pigeons. I gave up, took a digishot and finished it at home. This is the First Baptist Church across the street from Hume Fogg and the Customs building. Nashville is chock full of interesting buildings. Other than the panhandlers, downtown is great.

I drew this while waiting for our food at Rossi's in Smyrna. These ladies are really chowing down. Rossi's serves some good italian food. Pay them a visit. I have been visiting a lot of folks drawing blogs as well. I always enjoy seeing coffee shop and restaurant sketches with people doing what they do in those joints.

This Kinkade piece needed something. So I added Godzilla and a giant moth. I hear he uses maple syrup for his painting medium. High fructose corn syrup added for extra sweetness. ( I liked his plein air book.) Price $10,000,495.99 + Free Shipping
I did a couple oil paintings this weekend. A cup still life and a city scene. They are not dry enough to plop on the scanner though. I went to SprawlMart today. It was crowded. I locked some impressions of the crowd in my brain and sketched them when I got home. I forget where I put my keys at times, but am pretty good remembering images. Once I went to jam and forgot my keyboard! That is what happens when you get old. ;-)
