New Faces

5" x 7" drawing pad, mechanical pencil. April 30, 2013. Trying to draw caricatures of the new people we are meeting playing darts, so we can remember their names. Quick sketches, I'll add more, as we go more often.

Ball Caps

5" x 7" drawing pad, mechanical pencil. April 30, 2013. A set of four ball caps, hanging above a window in the new tavern we have been going to, to play darts. Oregon Beavers and Ducks hats.

Stewart Park Map

5" x 7" page and a half, drawing pad, pencil, colored pencil. April 30, 2013. They have posted new signs with mileage around the park trail, so we wanted a reference. We like to walk from the train to the butterfly garden, and the loop down by the river by the band shell. We also walk from the cafe at the golf course to the butterfly garden or to the duck pond, our friend works at the cafe, and we get sodas or breakfast while visiting with her. The river loop is .36 miles, the largest loop returning along the freeway is 2.64 miles, and cutting thru the VA Hospital grounds is 2.35 miles. We usually only do about a half mile, but Charlie is walking much better since his surgery.

Condiments II

5" x 7" drawing pad, mechanical pencil, colored pencils, Pigma pen. April 28, 2013. We went up to Glide Oregon and had breakfast on the deck of the Idllyde Restaurant, the assortment of condiments, was different with a scalloped bowl of jam and butter, and a teal sugar bowl.
