Nice design. On the street near Pastor Mori's church. I think this was
the first time a driver complained and told me to get off the street. I
was tempted to ask if he had a driver's license. When I do drawings on
streets they are wide streets with little traffic so there is plenty of
room to drive around. Seagulls ,cliff, lighthouse and trees.

Lots of Triptychs in Fukushima. A man stopped and gave me a cough drop
while I was doing this one. I was a little skittishas he seemed a little
unusual but I ate it anyway.
Cherry blossoms, Irises, and bird.

Pine trees , some type of birds, and a dandelion. Dandelions are considered
to be flowers here rather than weeds.

A very nice man came out and gave me a soft drink while I was doing this
one. I was shocked when he later came out and gave me another drink. I
have received drinks before but that was the only time to get 2 from the
It was a hot morning. .Thanks for the drinks!
Pine trees, mountains, and fields.

I could tell I was really in the sticks when just about the whole neighborhood
was talking about and staring at me and my art while doing this one. Too
bad it didn't turn out very well. Some day I hope to do this one over.
This area is beautiful with lots of rivers, dams, trees and mountains.
Design with a flower, bird , and a fish.

Cute design. I am not sure if this was supposed to be a bee or a firefly.
Since it looked like a nice daytime drawing ,I colored it as a bee It was
too windy to use my beach umbrella for shade so I drove my car right up
next to the drawing so my pencils could be in the shade.

This one is supposed to be Azaleas ( I think )but I decided to use a little
different color scheme.

This was the middle of a larger design as I didn't have the larger paper
yet. Tim Shubin and I took a road trip for Golden week. We hung out at
the Uomotos cabin near Sendai and then saw Goshikinuma, Fukushima in the
I got some great shots in the rain as Tim encouraged me to take some photos,
when I generally don't take pictures in the rain as it is a hassle keeping
me, the camera, and lenses dry.. Thanks Tim. How is your back?
