Ok. . .

I was afraid of this. My goal was to do some really good pen and ink, and some have been ok.
But, I am really liking the pencil stuff better.
I am not going to give up on the pen, but it is not going as well as I had hoped.
As my little girl is so fond of saying now, I need to 'concentrate' on the pen stuff still.

'Almost gone', monday's QS


Another covered bridge.

Pen was heavy this weekend. . .


but got my two done.

Friday's QS and tree


Got up early to haul brush then hit the gym, so pen was a little heavy today.

Did a trio. Not real happy with it. QS turned out a little better.

English Oak


Most trees seem to find a way of bending with the winds and storms that stir it's branch's.

But the English Oak appears to try to stand solid against the force's of nature. Not bending, not giving. Just stand there and take it. That is probably why they look so gnarled and unmoving.

They look solid and unbent. I had the chance a number of years ago to stay at a B&B in Sherwood Forest and see some of these old gaints.

Today's tree


Sorry, was not happy with yesterday's QS, so I removed it.

But here is today's tree. A gaint from oversea's.
Tried to show some of the large limb's on this tree.
They are gigantic!
