Artists Drive, Death Valley California
Artists Drive, Death Valley California art

Finally made it to Death Valley National Park. What a magical place! There is something irresistibly inspirational about the desert. Maybe it’s the way the mountain tops burn pink at sunset or the way the desert palette appears refined one minute then comes alive bursting with color the next.
Amazing.

Lunch and Light Drawing @ Bodega

Lunch and Light Drawing @ Bodega art
I love eating! And I love drawing my food. I am kind of a freak about it. Must run in the family because my sis is the same way! She runs the food blog, eat | food | yum, by the way. Together we are food-documenting fiends. These sketches resulted from my portion of our lunch together.
