This Week's Sketches and Collages

I have been busy this week, with some sketches, and a couple of collages. The first one is done with a sketch and wash pencil. It is a 1947 Hudson Pick up.
The 2nd one is 'Ol Blue' and it was Kens Pick up for years.  He named it and it stuck. It is parked with all our equipment, and is grown up in weeds. It has a lot of memories for us.  Especially the kids. I sketched it with a fine tip Sharpie.
 The 3rd one is from a photo I took in Seattle on our way to the 'Locks'. It is pencil.
Cotton Collage is just a 5x7, I did for fun. The Wyoming Boot Collage was because I needed  something for the silent auction for my workshop in Wyoming so I collaged it onto a Wyoming map.  The last one is an old station wagon jeep called 'Prairie Rose'. Sketched with my Lamy fountain pen.  I took the photo in Fredericksburg in 2002. I have two more that I am saving back. Will post them soon.
