Up, Up and Away...

                                                                  8.5  x 11    Pen & Ink
                                                        Balboa Park The Persian Garden

Why you ask this strange title well Lydia has done it again but now she is making us jump, literally.
One of the fun things I enjoy is sketching with this friday group when Lydia is with us for she is the Queen of  U-Tube videos and she's made a great one again but this time it has a twist to it. She found a blog called  Jumping in Art Museums where you can send them your pics of jumping for art so with this in mind we practiced at our sketching location since we were going to the Timken Museum to view the prints of Rembrandt but No Cameras allowed so just the practice jump was posted.
Here is the link of our exploits : HERE
