I was in Dallas a few weeks ago, traveling alone on business. After watching the Green Bay Packers beat the Saints, alone at a sports bar, I went down the street to a sports restaurant and had another beer and dinner. Traveling alone can get a bit lonely, like this sad glass of beer.

My friend Mike brought over some of the surplus produce from his CSA subscription. Leeks, parsnips, potatoes, carrots, parsley, etc. I used some of it in a winter vegetable chowder. These are the leeks and a few potatoes on the kitchen table.

A messy kitchen counter.

I wanted to draw the tomatoes before we ate them.

Went to the Mitchell Park Domes today. Didn’t stay long but it was nice while it lasted.

 

Last week I was in Dallas to help install the Posters of Paris exhibition. While drinking coffee and waiting to go to work at the Dallas Museum of Art I drew these trees.

 

This is from a small courtyard in front of an office building. They had these big round planters with little evergreens in them.

I was in Dallas last week doing some work at the Dallas Museum of Art. I didn’t get much drawing done. Come to think of it, the only time I did draw was while I was drinking coffee or in one case a beer (not a case of beer).

 

The building on the left is the AT&T building. It’s across the street from the Starbucks where I had my morning coffee and oatmeal.
