Russell theatre

The Russell theatre in Maysville, Kentucky. Maysville is the hometown of Rosemary Clooney. I believe that I read that this theatre was owned by her family.

Sketched from a photo taken by me three or so years past. Pitt pens, watercolor in a Hand book journal.

VanBuren Ice House

This sketch is from July 26, 2008. I had not finished adding color so it was not uploaded. Originally I had thought this building was part of the old Williamston, Michigan grain elevator but in the local paper today there was an article about it. It was an ice house or cold storage building built in the 1880s and used for cold storage into the 1920s.

View from my south window

This is what I see from the window over my drawing board. There is a busy highway between us. I was going to add some color but he house and garage and fence are white. It snowed last night so pretty much every thing else is white.

A tour of Lansing

The day started in Old Town Lansing Michigan across from the Unicorn Tavern. I've never been in there but they do have bands on the weekends. We'll have to try it one day.

Then just south of downtown Lansing for a sketch of the Board of Water & Light power plant. These three stacks can be seen for miles around.


Then I met some friends here for lunch. Zeus' Coney Island on South Pennsylvania in Lansing. Good food, good conversation. Haven't seen these people for a while.
