Pathways Through Summer
I love this time of year, festivals, carnivals, parades, fireworks. Of course, here in the mid-west we make the absolute most out of summer, especially when it comes to getting out doors. Last weekend in Cedar Falls, Iowa, it was the annual Sturgis Falls Celebration. A wonderful three day feast of color, music, an fun. My family and I spent three full days enjoying the fruits of this wonderful festival. I took along my sketch book as always, but with two little kids in tow it's sometimes impossible for me to use it.
In this next piece I actually found enough time to do a crude sketch of the oak tree opposite us. I remember the day as being green, so both of these pieces reflect that.
The Sketchbook Challenge. I'm looking forward to finding out the July theme tomorrow...stay tuned!
