i'm trying to learn how to use watercolors. it's been so much fun. here's one of my first attempts - not the most interesting subject.
i went skating on sunday at the local high school... my legs were killing me.

some more drawings from the zoo. the kids' play area is a great place to sketch.

this dad was soooo tired... maybe because i didn't draw him a big enough torso for his lungs.

i felt sorry for this poor girl. her dad seriously took like 5 minutes to take one photo.
