Boyce Thompson Arboretum

Went to Boyce Thompson Arboretum, a desert botanical garden that I hadn't ever been to.  It's a ways out of Phoenix but definitely worth it.  Sketched some and took pictures of their plants for sale.  Here's a sketch, here's a watercolor from the experience.

some sketches at tennis lessons

I am starting to do more sketching around so I will probably begin posting more or them.

Arizona Primary Lines

So I voted in the Primary in Phoenix on March 22.   It turned out to be a giant fiasco for voting but worked out for me because I brought my sketchbook.  I could tell the line was going to be long and with a lot of people standing around I thought it would be a perfect time to sketch people.  It turns out there was a lot of time to sketch people, 3 1/2 hours to be exact.  Through a friend of a friend the drawings I made were published in the AZ Republic, and then again today on the website Frank 151.  Here are the links:
