More architectural details

Old Colonial
A great old house that I sketched. I love doing these pencil sketches but I think I should try to do a painted version of it.

More from the farm in Luray

A beautiful old farmhouse with lots of cool smaller buildings all around.

A great little building on the farm. Fun to sketch and couldn't help thinking
what a great studio it would make.

Barn in Luray, Virginia

I got to visit this beautiful old barn in Luray last month.
It was on a great old farm with lots to draw. I'm back to my slower drawing style - the One Drawing a Day loose style doesn't seem to be working. I will try some more.

This great, large yacht came and docked in a tight little spot for a while. 
Amazing that I see all kinds of boats here.

Old Church

This old church became an antiques shop but now may be abandoned. Still lots of stuff there, but no people.

new boat drawing

I have been reading a new book: A Drawing a Day by Veronica Lawlor. I am going to try to draw faster and looser and try some pen and ink.

Thunder in the valley

Thousands of motorcycles rolled through Johnstown, PA when I happened to be there. This is the City Hall where flood waters rose up to the second floor window level way back when.

Delaware maintenance

Drawing of a small tug named Delaware though it always worked in Maryland. She's retired now living the good life in St. Michaels.

Alice Anne

This fishing boat by the Oak Creek bridge stayed in the water all winter. Had a nice view from the bridge so I did this pencil sketch.

Steel Magnolia

One of the few brave boats to winter-over in the harbor. I guess if you're made of steel nothing bothers you. But it's good to see all the ice is gone.

Hooper Strait Light

Had some fun doing this painting and it was accepted into a juried show on the Eastern Shore - which made it even more fun.

More of the Douglass house

Douglass house with another building on the museum grounds.

Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave

Just read this book and felt moved to draw this house that is a replica of Douglass' sister's house where he often visited.
