Stealing a few minutes to capture the raw beauty of west Texas

Took a few minutes while working on the Glass Ranch in Blanco Canyon near Spur, Texas to try and capture some of the incredibly rough, rugged and raw beauty of the place.  Big skies, big country and incredible beauty!

Road Trip: College GameDay

Patti and I traveled home to the Louisiana State campus for the LSU v. Alabama game this weekend, where ESPN College GameDay had set up for live broadcast on the campus's huge parade ground.  I moved to the rear of the field to get an overall vista of the action.  The venerable Law School building at far right acted as a nice counterpoint to all the temporary tents, canopies, and the ESPN tour bus (center).  Amazing energy and revelry for early on a Saturday morning!  Alabama won the hard-fought game, but Louisiana still has better food and music!

The Quilt Show

I've been going to the International Quilt Show here for many years, but I never took my sketchbook. Today, it was a welcome addition as it gave me the chance to rest my weary feet and try out my waterbrush loaded with Walnut Ink.
