Flying High

It was a marvelous day at Oak Street Beach Friday, sunny, warm and exciting. We watched the rehearsal for the Chicago Air and Water Show without the tremendous crowds that filled the beach on Saturday and Sunday during the actual show. Some of the jets going by looked like paper airplanes gracefully gliding by-that is until the sound caught up with the view. Awesome!

There was a great fundraising event going on at the beach sponsored by Honor Flight Chicago. Their mission is to honor and thank our WWII veterans by bringing them to Washington DC, at no cost to them, for a day of honor. Heartfelt and heartwarming, I wish them success!


  1. Well, I'm a bit behind. I think the drawings in your last 4 posts are great! This drawing is so well done - I am relaxed just looking at it - and like many others, I like the way you use shapes to outline the environment.

  2. Sounds like so much fun! Like Dan, I'm way behind in going through your delightful sketches.....

  3. this is a great sketch. It looks like they're directing a movie.
