Hunting for Inspiration

Here are some of my sketches from the last couple of weeks at the beach. Watching a bunch of Jr. Lifeguards hang out and wait for their parents to pick them up has provided me with a ton of material for Sam's Blogs (keep an eye out this Friday for a perfect example.) How awesome is being a twelve-year-old? I love to sit quietly and listen while I sketch them (my former students will remember I call this "hunting" and they are referred to as "victims.") They say the funniest things, and they say them with such authority! Wonderful age. I'm so totally excited for my own boy to go to Jr. High this year. He will only amuse me more, I'm sure.

I have six days until we leave for Maui, my lesson plans for this semester look pretty good, my husband bought me a new surfboard (9'0" Mike Dawson,) the water's warm and there's a little swell. Can't really complain...
