This pen and watercolor is from when we traveled down to Ponte Vedra, Fl this spring to see my grandma and the ocean! My grandma loved sitting by the grass coming up out of the sand. Such a wonderful time at the beach!

Traveling is a love of mine and I try never to leave town without my sketchbook. If I happen to find myself without a pad of paper, I'll go and buy one, which is what I had to do on my first trip to France. I still have my canvas backpack and leather bound sketchbook that I bought at Nature et Decouvertes in Paris back in 2004. Here are a few of my drawings from that book:
