trip to the Gulf of Mexico

Last weekend our son Matt and his wife Misty invited us to join them in Rockport, Texas to celebrate our grandson Quen's 8th birthday. I'm a bit slow in finishing and posting sketches.

We stayed in a private beach house only a couple of houses from the gulf; the above scene is what greeted us as Bill and I took an early morning walk.

The Gulf is so much bluer here than in Galveston! The water temperature is much cooler than normal for this time of year but beautiful.


  1. What a lovely place! I'm so glad you had the chance to get away...

  2. Being with non-sketchers (and still a bit weak recovering from a 24-hour virus), I didn't sketch on site. But I want to sketch several pages from photos to remember our fun in my sketchbook.

  3. Beautiful page! Love the sky and ibises and kitten....
    By the way I have subscribed following your blog by my e-mail yesterday, but this your post hasn't come yet... What do I have to do more?

  4. Jana, I have no idea how it works --- just that you enter an email address where you want notification to come. Not sure why you haven't received an email, unless your email program put it in a spam file. You might check there and click that it is not spam; maybe add the address to your contact list. (I'm not that knowledgeable about computer programs.)

  5. Hi, Vicky, it works! It has traveled for 24 hours... doesn´t matter, I am glad it works :)
    Have a nice weekend!

  6. Oh, good Jana! Happy to hear it works.
