Early Morning Squash

Was awake too early one day last week and painted an acorn squash that has been on my counter at 5:30 in the morning, which is when I normally wake up. I am not going to make a habit of being up two hours earlier than normal but at least I had fun painting before I left for work.

Peek at Paris

This last June I traveled to France and Italy with a group of students.  The trip was crazy busy and had limited time for sketching.  I sketched this at St. Michael's Square in Paris, France while the students in my group had about 45 minutes of free time.  It is a section of an accordion fold journal I had with me on the trip.
