A page of things

Page of sketches - Click image for larger view
I though I would publish this page so you can see just how much the weather has had an impact on my style.  And not just the weather but that astronomical thing called sunrise, which I think is getting a bit better but still way too late in the day for my sketching habits. So my time is limited and the mornings are cold and maybe just maybe I'm getting a bit lazy… but I do know that my sketches have been getting smaller. This page has generated a lot of chatter when I posted it elsewhere, so I thought I would share it here too. This is kind of a parking lot tour…starting in the upper left is the insurance company that is in the post below, a trash bin at the McDonalds in Wyoming (looking toward the Wendy's) where I parked one day, a funeral home in East Providence and another parking lot in Wyoming where the snow is piled up. These sketches were each done in about 15 minutes or less. The sunrise isn't until 7:15 and I am typically walking in the door at work by 7:30 so there isn't much light to sketch by and certainly no good shadow action going on. I will keep pushing forward and eagerly awaiting the earth swing around the sun to set the timing right. . .
