Obon Festival at the Vista Buddhist Temple 2014

The Obon Festival at the Vista Buddhist Temple had Jodaiko, a collegiate taiko group perform as part of the festival's entertainment. What great practice for gesture drawing! This is my page of sketches done during their 30 minute performance.

Butterfly Garden or Nudist Colony?

Zoro Garden, a sunken stone grotto garden that was designed as a nudist colony during the 1935 California-Pacific Exposition is now a butterfly garden containing both the larvae and nectar plants needed for the complete life cycle of butterflies.

This was the location of our sketchcrawl to day with the weekday sketchers.

Pizza Studio

The Pizza Studio is located in The Spreckels Building in the Gaslamp area of San Diego, California. The building which opened in 1912, was constructed to commemorate the opening of the Panama Canal. My drawing was done in the outside seating area of the Pizza Studio while on an meetup with the San Diego Urban Sketchers Meetup Group.

Rocky (the boxer)

This is my dog Rocky. He is part boxer and part something else. I think the other part is pit-bull but Gary didn't want to tell me so he said, "he's part boxer and part something else."
