Stone Mountain, GA in the middle of a heatwave. My daughter can sniff out Starbuck's like no one else, and she found one at a resort hotel on the mountain. We went in and I had my usual Venti Lowfat Iced Chai and cooled off enough to draw this tree that was right outside the window. Ahhhh.

Someone familiar (my friend Sandra) from an unusual angle, her hair, and her hat. We were sitting at AtlantaFest listening to music, and I was sitting behind Sandra, drawing. Her daughter is a vocalist (amazingly beautiful voice) for our kids' band, LifeJam. It was a fantastic three days on top of Stone Mountain.
Again, at AtlantaFest. This guy was not going to miss the speakers or the music, but used a t-shirt on top of his head to block the rays. It made me giggle. I really enjoyed drawing this young man as he sat so still listening to the inspirational messages.
This red umbrella was actually hooked up to someone's chair at the AtlantaFest. It was being used to block the sun in the extreme heat on top of Stone Mountain in Georgia. There was nothing to do but sit and listen and draw, a group of us sat in the shade of one of those portable shelters and tried not to melt from the heat. We were visiting the AtlantaFest because our kids are in a band called LifeJam that qualified for the Talent Search. A great time was had by all!

This is our beloved dog, Apollo. He is so named because my husband and I grew up during the Space Race and my dad worked on the Apollo launch missions. He is a really good dog, a lab/St. Bernard mix so is constantly trying to rescue us from danger. Here I have captured him taking a much needed rest. He's such a great dog that we really don't mind if he takes the best chair in the house from time to time. :)
This little dragonfly was sitting on the porch table yesterday. I drew it for my daughter and sent her the image over email, because she loves dragonflies. Several times they have just come to her and sat on her shoulder. One of her friends said it is because she is magic. Anyway, here is Lizzie's dragonfly drawing.
