Last year we spent a few days in San Antonio, TX. Our hotel was right on the River Walk and it was beautiful! I had drawn this in ink and just got around to adding color to it.
I met two friends at El Arroyo's restaurant last Thursday in Arlington. The weather was perfect! The sky was clear, it was about 73°, with a very light wind. We were able to sit on the patio and sketch the unusual architecture of the shopping center across the street. I chose to zero in on the roof line.
I joined a Virtual Sketch Walk group on Facebook called "Sketch With Me". There are members from all over the world. Each month, on an appointed day, we are all given a theme to sketch. Then our sketches are posted online for everyone to see. Cathy Johnson put the group together. This was my first month to join in and the theme was Gratitude.
I made a simple accordion folded sketchbook for this group. I will show it in my next post.
I have been busy making "leaves and acorns" today! I hope they will look good on the Thanksgiving table tomorrow. And taste good too!!
We have much to be thankful for!
Enter his gates with Thanksgiving and his courts with praise; Give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.

Our local Urban Sketchers group met this past Saturday in downtown Grapevine, TX. It is a lovely historic town with many sketching opportunities! I want to go back on my own, as weather permits and sketch more. The weather Saturday was perfect, sunny and around 70 degrees. We had a wonderful time!! I wasn't able to finish my drawing there but will post as soon as it is finished. Here is our group photo.....
