I was wandering downtown Manassas and decided to take advantage of the lovely weather to draw the train station there. I sat in the gazebo across the street, which seems a common location to take photographs. To be honest, I’m not at all happy with this; I’m simply not very good at drawing buildings. But you know what? That’s why we practice.

It bothers me a little bit that Grandma Moses is known mostly for being old, but her paintings are nice.

Despite having grown up absolutely nowhere near water, I really like lighthouses. I stood in the wind as I drew, a man nearby flying a kite far above my head as the sun started to set. A lovely day, and I’m glad I took the time to draw part of it.
(I also love national parks because I can put the stamp in my sketchbook.)

There weren’t many female Impressionists, so Morisot’s work was new to me, but I like it.

It was a windy and chilly April day that I visited Oxon Hill Farm, far too windy to draw the cows in the field as I’d wanted. So I took shelter in this little building and drew the old tractor they had on display along with other ancient technology.

I couldn’t find an image of her signature.

The prompt was “food with a face.” I started by drawing broccoli more or less in the style of Ballycumber the BookCrossing logo, and just kind of went from there. The final picture amuses the crap out of me.

I am so pleased with myself for this one. I’d always misheard the lyrics to this song, and with a prompt like mondegreens, I knew I had to go for it. She’s even holding the ELO shield! Come on, it’s hilarious.
