on location sketching in the Lake Tahoe region, Nevada side
latest updates: Nevada
One thing that really caught my attention is this newer commercial building I was at, have a rusty look to it… It is pretty interesting how architecture design it. It is uncommon to have actual iron beam as a pillar and rustic metal tiles just above the store’s sign.
Oh this is my first page breaking into my 2nd new Moleskine sketchbook!
I know some people on here are “bending” the rule about posting some artwork that isn’t in the moleskine… I thought I like to share this to you all, and it will (probably) my 1 time to break it and I really enjoyed doing this little project. Hopefully, this will spark some extra creativity into everyone on here. =)
Sending something extra special to my 94 years old Grandmother back in Florida, putting lots of love into this envelope! =)
I like this kind of idea doing this, showing my work on the outside to brighten the day of hardworking postal employees across the nation!
A lot of unemployees are waiting in line for the job fair at one of the Casino conference centre. I’m sure you know that the State of Nevada now have the highest unemployment rate (14.2%) topping over #1′s Michigan, which isn’t cool…
I was sitting in a chair sketching out the people who were dressed for on-floor interview and trying to make a good impression to get the job.
Although, I’m not too sure about the guy in a white shirt with odd-looking cornrows sticking out in different directions…
Thought I take a little break from uploading my British Columbia trip sketches (still have a lot to share with you guys).. Maybe a bit of change of “scenery” for you.. Here is a taste of boring Nevada’s urban landscape..
This is one of an older sketch I did before my trip in late May.. This was done around early May, I think..
I was in Paris Hotel and Casino while I was walking down on the Strip from a Trade Show to get a lunch break. I do not know why, but I had a sudden urge to get something French for lunch (a lunch Crepe) and start drawing something… “Frenchy.” As for the translation on the bottom of the page: “De Paris faux avec amour!” means “From fake Paris with love.” Oh, I’m sure you can figure out what “Les Toilettes” means…
This is the last painting in this Travel Journal Moly. It was a barn too pretty to pass up and I was in no hurry to get home anyway. So my dog and I sat in the sun to paint this.
It was a lovely vacation and I hope to take another one next year. Hope you all enjoyed traveling with me.
