Butterfly Conservatory

Last Weekend Nicole and I went to Niagara Falls. The weather was gorgeous and we had a wonderful time. The fall foliage was at its peak and the views of the falls were truly spectacular. We even had dinner atop the Minolta tower. We were the last table to leave and had the whole restaurant to ourselves for a private viewing of one of the last fireworks displays of the season. Saturday we had lunch at the Secret Garden restaurant and spent the afternoon at the Butterfly Conservatory just north of downtown. What an amazing place! Thousands of stunningly beautiful butterflies dance around you in a lush tropical paradise. It was absolutely beautiful. Here's a drawing I did from one of the many photographs I took there.

Ballpoint Quickies

I feel like this blog thing of mine is a little neglected. So, here's a couple quick ballpoint sketches done in the last couple of days.

On the left is my left hand and below is a quick face where I ran out of room on the back of one of those page-a-day calendars. (They pile up around my desk and usually get doodled on. This one got a little more attention than usual, which is why you see it here.)
