Hogback Mountain

One of my favorite things to do is to take my sketchpad and watercolors outside to create with. This is a picture that has a story too....

 First, here is the view of Hogback Mountain that I sketched...hopefully you can see some similarities!


Usually when I set out to sketch I have a public destination in mind but this time my friend Jamie and I just set out to see where life lead us. It lead us on many a road but finally we turned up Pinnacle Mountain and saw some breath taking vistas, the one pictured above really caught our eye and we stopped on the road to gape...lol....that's when we saw the man watching us from his yard!! I rolled down my window to explain we were looking for something to draw, and he invited us to sketch from his porch!! OMG...it was awesome, I was in house envy! His wife was so sweet, offering us ice tea and the use of their bathroom if we needed it! Here is a picture of Jamie sketching...

It was such an unexpected and fun adventure, the only downside was that were sketching in the sun, so I came home with a sunburned neck, arms and feet!
Ouchie....

How cool is that. And so lucky, what a nice couple to invite you into their space. The place you were painting looks wonderful.
