Then, I finished my pig for the Hog Dog Festival
competition. It is a BLT Sandwich (as if you couldn't

Then, late this afternoon, I did another drawing lesson
with Ricky. He is a senior in high school, and participating
in the Senior Project. They have to select a skill they
want to learn, find a mentor to teach them, and complete
a final project along with a presentation at the end of the
semester. He will spend 15 hours with me learning to
draw in pencil. His final project is a portrait of his house.
And then, on my way home, I stopped to photograph this
lovely crabapple tree that is in downtown near the gallery.
I love to see it every spring; the delicate pink blooms make
me smile. I managed to find a bee, busy at work. Me too!
