Two Meals

The last few weeks my wife and I have had the pleasure of enjoying some meals alone (with a tiny chaperone in our 7 month old). For our anniversary we went to Jolle's French Bistro in Skaneateles, NY. A wonderful, european garden eatery that was complimented by a fantastic meal and the introduction to new friends who took sweetly, to our chaperone. This sketch the watercolour was applied first and after drying and during dessert the lines found their place.

We have just returned from a nice trip to Dallas (again alone with the exception of the ever present chaperone). Our first outing, meal, sketch right after arriving was to go to an amazing little restaurant Oddfellows in Dallas NY. ( ). If ever the chance presents itself, take the time to enjoy an espresso, a meal and the atmosphere. This is a thank you to the staff for making Dallas' first impression positive and lasting.

Girl Reading

On a recent flight this wonderfully linear passenger across the aisle from me oscillated between reading and sleeping...the lines of the yellow skirt and the supportive elbow /arms, were so still and well placed, over the four hour flight some quick sketches were inevitable. This is the outcome after 10 minutes of capturing the lines.

Portneuf Restaurant

The Portneuf Valley Brewing is a great little restaurant in Pocatello Idaho. Quaint and kind...the homemade Pizza was absolutely fantastic. The joint has to be discovered as it is in a part of town where you would think would not house such a gem.

Abigail's B&B

Recently I have had the great opportunity to meet Jill and Scott at Abigail's Bed and Breakfast. A wonderful and warm interior is only bettered by the breakfast: Home made breead and jam, eggs benedict, caramel baked french toast....and the fresh berry good so with the views, too!
