Because I created this blog when I thought I was going to close out my art blog, I figure since I'm not using it now I will post my sketches I did in the past, when I went back and worked on them.  This one, I wasn't happy with the trees so I went and fixed them somewhat.

I will just use this blog more as a private blog that nobody comes to probably - except for the random visit - to update my older sketches.

When we were in Cayucos recently my sister showed me a thrift/antique shop which is probably now my favorite  - except I do love the one close to me in Cedar Glen which I will have to take her to some time.  Anyway, this print in the frame was $5 so I couldn't pass it up.  I love the style and want to play around with sketching different scenes with this style and maybe using this woman as a model.  I am still extremely frustrated with my art blog so I just might start posting here.  I can do everything I want on the art blog such as post (although slow), read comments - but I can't change anything from my dashboard such as theme or backgrounds, etc. 

I'll start this new blog with this photo and see where I go from here.  If anything changes with the other one I might go back to it. 

I've tried to google the artist but there isn't one on the print - the only thing it says is New York at the top and Cafe Society.  I really like the style.

just testing.

I may use this blog - but am finding it slow like my other sketch blog.  I'll have this blog as a backup if I need one for my sketches but I'm hoping things straighten out on my art blog.  I did a search and I didn't find anything reported about people having problems in my area. 

(This photo was taken of a mural on the outside wall of a vet's office that I saw a few years back).
