We have the best dog in the world, except for when she is the worst.  When back in Georgia we acquired a lovely little Beagle puppy and we fast fell in love.  Until, of course, we realized that she has no self control when it comes to food, and a bladder the size of her brain...(both can be measured in millimeters.)  Last night, after being scolded by the wife for sharing a bit of my snack with her...I decided to do a little sketch of our beloved little beagle, Sadie.

Thanksgiving Point, and other stuff

Recently, my family returned to Utah for a brief vacation and to see family.  While there, we went to Thanksgiving Point Gardens which were rather breathtaking.  I took many photos of the flowers, which were really quite spectacular.  Upon returning, I sketched the following, trying to capture a handful of the images that were left in my mind from the trip:

Also, while there, a visit to my wife's father's house afforded me a few minutes to sketch a beautiful tree that they had in their back yard with a swing on it.  This tree has seen many grandchildren spend many hours swinging underneath the brawny, black limbs next to their swimming pool.
