July 2011: Two Museums

July 2011: Two Museums - Penguins
Wonderfully foggy day in San Francisco: Picasso in the De Young and Snakes and Lizards (and penguins ;) at the Academy of Sciences. I love drawing with pencil but smudging drives me nuts! I stopped in the middle of the museum to apply some watercolor over penguins as my sketch was getting obliterated by all the people passing by - yes it was crowded. As usual.

We stayed overnight in a nice cabin which had two really cool things: this chair (with a mirror and drawer) and a large oak tree around which deck was built - with a raccoon family in it :) (not pictured :)

May 2011: Pinnacles National Monument

We had a great time at the Pinnacles despite the fact that we came to the wrong entrance and had rather cold and wet night. It's a beautiful place!

May 2011: Pinnacles National Monument
Lots of flowering plants, very colorful rock formations: all sorts of orange-red with turquoise - at least that's how it looked early in the morning. We had to go through some rock passages that made me a little nervous but as soon as I realized how cool it will look when I sketch this place some the other side I ran ;)
