"Flying Solo 2..."

...for the
January 10, 2009
Since
I had a previous commitment
on the other side of the valley today
I was not able to meet up with the Phoenix group.
So, I "flew solo" again and
just sketched
what happened during my every day life today.
Click on the image to enlarge if you would like to read my notes :)
Today
was exceptionally clear here in the Valley of the Sun...
67 degrees, sunny...paradise-like...
we even saw the Four Peaks Mountains
from our home here in Surprise!
That would be close to 80 some miles away!!!
I love when that happens!
Now...
I can't wait any longer...
I am off to check out all the sketches
made on this one day in January
all over the world!

You can make any old day beautiful by the way you interpret it :)

We're expecting record temps this week after being in record low temps the past 2 weeks. I'll take it!

Really inspiring, Margaret, and beautiful! I especially love today's quote. So true!

I'm working towards gaining enough confidence to join the next Sketch Crawl, whoohoo!

your solo is wonderfully 'alive'. without an eraser? sounds like my art teacher, she won't let us use them.
wordveri:twelve (what's happening for you on the twelfth?)

What an interesting spread - makes me feel I spent the day with you. How lucky you are to have such a view of distant mountains and hot temperatures in January. Just to let you know I DID JOIN YOU (earlier post) and coloured in a zentangle design and posted it.

What a busy day Margaret. It was fun following along through your sketch. I am also rooting for the Cardinals since our Colts went out of the playoffs. Were you sketching while watching the game? One of my favorite times to sketch is during a ballgame.

your Solo is terrific - I especially like the lock on your new briefcase. :)

Go Cards!
