For our vacation this summer we are going to do something totally different, we are going to the beach and probably Atlanta’s Stone Mountain Park, Six Flags, World of Coke, Georgia Aquarium and a few other places but we are not staying in hotels, we are going camping or maybe it’s a bit of glamping! (Glamour Camping).
I have been researching a lot about converting small trailers into “Tent Trailers” that make your camping experience a bit nicer, so come along with me as I try to prepare for our camping adventure this summer. I plan to post more photos of the actual building process but wanted to show you the basic idea so we have something to compare to, if we actually finish it and find a way to pull this off.
UPDATE: I did end up creating this trailer. See the photos below. However after using it for a while, I tore it down and rebuilt another ”teardrop” style trailer on top of the same trailer frame. Enjoy the photos below.
I have been sketching on paper for a while now but am going to try going digital by sketching through a series of different apps on my iPad mini. We will see how it goes.
I am working to get up every morning and sketch something. Its that daily routine that I struggle with, so this morning Jodee went out to ride her bike with her sister on the Swamp Rabbit Trail and I brewed some grits and and sat at the kitchen table and sketched the sink!
So I have been following this great artist Danny Gregory for a while now, In fact he is who inspired me to start a Illustrated Journal. However with tons of freelancing work getting in the way I dropped it a month or two ago but I want to get back in the habit of doing it. Danny started back posting drawings a couple of weeks ago from the Every Day Matters series that Karen Winters started and I really think that I want to start doing this as well. I think I’ll follow Dannys list but may switch to some from Karen’s list as well.
I really can’t wait to get back drawing full-time and posting them on the site, hang in there with me – its coming.
No I did not stop and grab donuts before sketching this one….
I decided to drive toward Downtown Greenville today, I almost made it into town but thought this line of telephone poles was neat all lined up and blocking my view of the downtown.
I am enjoying this very loose quick sketching. This one took me only about 20 minutes to complete. To me it gives you a sense of the view that I was looking at but I am only pointing out the parts that I want you to see. I am leaving out the noise and trying to let you see some beauty in what is otherwise not a very beautiful scene.
A quick 30 minute sketch sitting in front of The Blood Connection on Woodruff Road. I am a blood donor myself and thought this would be a nice quick sketch of their new location.
I thought this was an interesting scene while I sat in my truck, ate lunch and sketched. All the telephone lines in the way distracting the view of the church but I loved it. The church sign read “Visitors Welcome, Members Expected!”
