Day Four: National Park Sketchbook

As we rolled across Nebraska, following a very low Platt River, toward the rocky mountains of Wyoming, a flood of memories triggered a complex sensation of love, sadness, wonder and gratitude. I saw five springs hit the great divide, from age 21-26 (1975-1980). This 10 day return trip saw some surprising changes. Stay tuned for more live sketches and observations…

Hot and live sketches! Five National Parks in Ten Days.

Here are a few pages from my National Park Sketchbook the past 2 weeks. Returning to the land of my college days produced strong emotions and some shocking changes. Stay tuned.

Shoshoni in MacDolalds72

This scene in Lander caught my eye. A few days later, I heard a powerful speech by a Crow indian National Park ranger at the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument in Montana. He told the true story that was passed down from eye witness stories of the Battle of the Little Bighorn. What I heard and saw last week moved me in ways difficult to explain in words.

My son asked. She said “yes!”

Over a year ago, on Tybee Island, my son asked Julie Rooks to be his bride. The wedding is now only a month away. This watercolor sketch was scanned from my journal and is the cover of the wedding invitation. (Un dessin indique mille mots.)
