Tyler and his Kindle

I liked this picture of Tyler, our younger son, so much that I had to try and sketch it. I really like all the folds in his clothes and the shadows they created.
We were attending Luke's (our other son) graduation from Taylor University and during a break in the celebrations Tyler sat down in the grass to read his Kindle.
Like Tyler I always make it a point to have something to read with me at all times to make productive use of spare moments. Do you do that?
Reading and sketching is a great way to unstring the bow.

Sketching in Taiwan

As usual I try to find a few moments on my trips to "unstring the bow" and find something unusual to sketch. This week I was in Taiwan visiting Morrison Academy. In the center of campus are these old huge trees that are shaped like bonsai trees. I had to try and sketch one of them.
Proof that I was really there!
Check out those trees!! Cool, right? I think so. The campus is beautiful and the trees help make it that way. That high-rise in the background houses their dormitories and staff housing.
