These are a couple of fairly quick sketches I made of the old train station in Ann Arbor MI. (It’s now a fancy restaurant.)
The St Vincent de Paul Thrift Store of Ann Arbor is in a great old building. It was a nearly perfect summer morning for me.
Despite the name, the Detroit Observatory is in Ann Arbor. It sits up on a little hill surround by dormitories and medical research buildings. Not too many years ago it had fallen into a pretty shabby state but it’s much better cared for now.
I made a quick sketch while my seven year old amused himself by trying to throw fallen pine cones back onto their former tree. I need to come back when I can do it a little more justice. It’s a great little building and it deserves better.
While waiting for a store to open, we sat and had coffee and I made a quick sketch. I need to come back and do this simple building justice sometime.
When the shop opened I bought some new sketch books.
A quick sketch of the garden in the little island in the parking lot where we stopped for a donut and coffee this morning. It was going to be a hot day but it was nice sitting at a picnic table in the shade.
