This is just a quick post today since I am pressed for time. Our brother-in-law is being sworn in today as one of two superior court judges for our county. It's a very big deal so we will be leaving shortly to go and watch the proceedings and to support our family.
In the meantime, I have the above two sketches for my work today. The first one is based on an idea I had the other morning. I noticed the moon rising through the trees in our backyard, silhouetted against the mountains beyond. It seemed like a scene with some good shapes. The second sketch is from a thumbnail sketch that I did late last year. It's another take on Lake Alpine. Lots of great shapes there!
OK, hope everyone is off to a good start today. I'll be back tomorrow with more sketches. There should be some actual painting on Wednesday! (Fingers crossed!)
