Illustration Friday: Flying
The Illustration Friday topic today is Flying. I will be flying to Maine very early in the morning, but that's actually the part of the trip I'd just as soon not think about. I am not a happy flyer. So I am posting this little oil sketch I did yesterday afternoon, of a guy who rides past our house regularly. He may think he is flying, but he is "Mostly Coasting" (which is what I have titled it.) It's just 5x7", oil on masonite.
For those of you who have been keeping up with Booker's progress and deeds, he is growing so much, that he looks like a small dog now, instead of a puppy. He is even starting to have some 'big boy' plumes on his tail! Craig took him on a short hike in the high desert west of town yesterday, and took these photos.
He is, however, 'in the doghouse' with me, because I had to pay the library $40 to replace a book that he ate a page out of. It is the only book he's ever attacked like that! I wonder who had had it before me?
The fall colors are reported to be 'near peak' where we are going tomorrow! So, for the next week, I'll be shooting lots of gorgeous and, hopefully, inspirational photos. My husband informed me that I now have the capacity to take about 8,000 high resolution photos. Yikes! He shouldn't have told me that!....
