Went to the Memorial Art Gallery and signed up for an upcoming Sketchbook class. I'm looking forward to this. It's just three Thursday evenings, which will fly by, but promises to fill up my sketchbook with ideas and doodles and hopefully a bit more technique. Class begins next week.
I hope to get back to Brown's to pick more strawberries today. Cherries too.
The sun is out!
Hopefully tonight, we'll mosey on over to Rochester and see the Average White Band. Rochester has a whole slew of concerts.
