This first image above was done at Michigan State University gardens on the south side of the CN tracks. This is the first sketch in my new Hand Book Journal 8.25" x 5.5". It also has a red cover if anyone is interested. Seems like this is going to be my favorite size as it was very comfortable to use. I sat on a similar bench to do this sketch and it was in the shade with a cool breeze. So it was a fantastic day. A new sketchbook, a light lunch in the park and railroad tracks about 30 feet away with a couple of trains going by while I was there. It don't get much better.
