Nope, this isn't some great architectural monument. It is a 24 hour old repair job on our chimney. Yesterday there was a hole in the upper right hand corner through which multitudinous, multifarious squirrels were passing. We hired a roofing company, who sent their intrepid, heat tolerant carpenter to fix it. For a few hours all looked well. Regrettably, the squirrel(s) are already down to BARE WOOD. On the corners, at the base of the chimney, AND at the same "loft level" entry they preferred before.
NOTICE TO SQUIRRELS:
STOP EATING OUR HOUSE.
You may have heard about rains in Texas. This popped up in an "empty" planter. If you know what it is, please tell me. I'm looking at the trios of leaves and wondering if POISON IVY has had the nerve of growing in a POT. hmph.
I happened to have camera in hand when the cat was staring at me through the kitchen blinds.
I had plenty of anxieties before hand.
But the instructor is relaxed and helpful. And while many of my drawings didn't capture an accurate essence of our wonderful model, every once in a while there would be some curve or some line that "worked." You can see more at Flickr by clicking on the image.
