Luckily the rain was scant on our drive to and from Chicago. I'm always amazed at the beauty of the clouds, especially considering that these were all taken with my clamshell cell phone and in a moving car!!

Using pastels, our first project was to take a shell and draw it. It was a lot harder than it seemed. This was an introductory class, but it was apparent that the participants had had previous training.
For our last project we blocked in the backround with turpenol/pastels and then added detail. I'm only showing 4 of the nine works. Guess which one is mine. (I wish I could say that I did the water scene, but I did not!!) You are not seeing the second project because mine looked like a third grader did it!! Hint: Jane, I used a photo you sent me to work from.

My brother took me to one of the coolest gardens I have ever been to. It must be over 100 years old.
My 93 year old father says he walked thru it as a 20 year old at Stanford University. Near the Mausoleum, it is one of the University's best kept secrets. Wish I could be there when more flowers were in bloom. Made me want to get out my pastels!!!
