Making Do….

I decided to take advantage of what could be the last really nice autumn day last Friday. I packed up my things and went to Whipple Dam State Park, which is just under a half hour from my house. I walked around a bit, enjoyed the leaves and colors and the views, and set up on the beach next to the lake. As I unpacked my travel bag, I discover that everything was in there EXCEPT the sketchbook!!!

The only paper I had was a tiny notepad in my car (sheets measuring about 2″ x 4″!), so I tried to make do with it. Lousy paper, and much to small. But sometimes, you have to work with what you’ve got, right?

Heavy Heads

The peonies have been glorious this spring, in part due to all of the rain we have had. I realized that I had better capture the before they all faded!

My lettering go a bit muddled, but I managed to capture the impression of the multitude of leaves, at least. Maybe tomorrow I will try another view while they are still in full flower.
