Orientation

A few thoughts to go with this sketch from a very full day at Wingate University with my oldest daughter, Catherine, for freshman orientation:

*It was as much orientation for me (a parent) as it was for her.

*Information overload hit me about noon.  Day wasn’t over until 6 pm. Whew!

*Overall impression:  Amazed at this wonderful school and that Catherine has earned and been given the opportunity to go to Wingate.

*In case you’re wondering…they are the Bulldogs!

*Sketch made with trusty bic pen while shivering in the air-conditioning, sitting for hours on end in between walking outdoors in the rain to the next lecture.  Note to self:   bring sweater AND umbrella next time!

*Watercolor added in early this morning.  I like working this way: draw on site, in the moment.  Then relive the moment as I add watercolor touches.  Nice way to savor life.

    Hear hear! No better way to enjoy life, I say. And no better way to fight information overload than to sketch the crowd – I do the same thing. Fine sketch – really captures the moment. Congratulations on your daughter – the pride comes through.
