What do you do when you’re at Houston’s fine art museum for a Friday morning creative talk and you don’t feel up to “networking” beforehand or simply listening to the speaker once it starts? Why, you take out your pen and sketch of course!
I sketched this woman on the bus last month. As with all the pen and ink sketches I’ve done while riding to and from my former job, I had about 15 minutes to create the image. See more here.
A few years back I went on a watercolor “paint out” to a dairy goat farm outside of Houston called Blue Heron Texas. There a young couple make wonderful goat cheese from Nubian goats and sell it regionally at farmers markets. It was a great experience. There were just about every species of barnyard critter you can imagine. Cats, dogs, pigs, chickens, and a giant male turkey by the name of Dory.
As I stood at my field easel, painting away, Dory sauntered up to me and began humping my leg. Not a little. A lot. This was a big turkey, and he just about knocked me off my feet. I was greatly amused, as was the young lady who was hosting us, and besides being somewhat embarrassed, decided to record the event for her blog. Dory followed me around for the rest of the day. I made a few sketches, but didn’t get much painting done. Alas, I found out a few weeks later that he ended up in a frying pot.
