Frankfurt - Building
11:15-1:15 = August 18, 1998 - Bamboo - 18x24cm

A grate/ drain that looks like windows on the side of a building. This was drawn near the Messe/convention center near the Hotel in Frankfurt. I attended the Greater Europe Mission annual conference at this time as I wanted to spend time with Kim and Jenny.
Frankfurt
4:00-5:20 = August 15, 1998 -Bamboo - 13x25cm

I mainly tried using up my bright colored pencils that I usually don't use too much on my sketches. As I was walking around taking pictures I almost got hit by a train as the tracks are on the roads and I was busy looking through my camera while walking.
Frankfurt
10:30-12:35 August 15, 1998 - Bamboo - 10x20cm

I sat on a walkway and drew the view from under a bridge.
Kandern
8:30 - 9:05 = August 25, 2007 - Watson - 10cm

This was done next to the small river flowing by Kim and Jenny's house. About 5 or 6 of us hiked up the river ( walking in the river) on Sunday afternoon. It was hard keeping the younger ones quiet as they were yelling and laughing .( On Sunday afternoons you are supposed to keep quiet for a few hours here .)
Kandern
3:15 - 4:20 = August 17, 2007 - Watson off white- 32 x 32cm

I showed Kim how I do the rubbings. This was done on the street in front of their house.
Kandern
4:30 - 5:25 = August 17, 2007 - Watson off white - 18cm

Done near a public square so a few people stopped by to see what I was doing.
Kandern
5:45 - 6:45 = August 26, 2007 - Swiss paper - 26 x 38cm

I had spotted this on the side of a bridge while we were creek walking. Ross drove me back here with a plastic chair for me to stand on and dropped me off. I was standing on the chair in the middle of the river stretching way up to do the drawing. My pencils were in a Tupperware ballanced on a pipe along the side of the bridge. One of my pencils fell into the water during the drawing so I had to chase it down. I felt like I was leaving the 99 to save the one lost sheep..
Kandern
11:15 - 12:30 = August 27, 2007 - Swiss paper - 36 x 49cm

This was done next to the tennis court at Black Forest Academy so quite a few people wondered who I was and what I was doing.
Kandern
4:00 - 5:20 = August 21, 2007 - Swiss paper - 44 x 72cm

This is the tile flooring inside the front door at Kim and Jenny's. On rainy days I try to find a dry place to do drawings. I debated whether or not to use color on this one
Kandern
11:15 - 2:15 = August 23, 2007 - Swiss paper - 63 x 65cm

Done on a beautiful day, but hot for Germany. This was done on the sidewalk along the main street in Kandern. Reminds me of an alien.

This was of memorial plates on the sidewalk for Jews who were taken away to be killed in concentration camps, back in the 1930's.. Their names, and information about when and where they were taken away to were engraved in the gold colored plates.
