Maundy Thursday sketches

The morning of Maundy Thursday this year (3/29/18) I went to Centering Prayer at Providence UMC in Mt. Juliet.  I used to go home after that until it was time to go to work, but I’ve started staying out, looking for a place to sketch.  I wasn’t sure where I was going to go with not a lot of time, but I needed to go to the post office to check to see if we had any mail.  It was raining a little, so I decided to stay there and sketch.

I brought my sketch tools in to sketch the Seder presentation.  It was just a demonstration, not set out for everyone.  But then I was asked to participate!

 

 

 

 

 

Cinco de Mayo (place, not day)

This took three trips – from November 2017 to March 2018. Fortunately we have a lot of “buy one get one free” coupons.  The service is very fast here, so I quit sketching when the food came.  Thankfully we were able to get the same booth so I could continue the sketch.  In reality – there are a LOT more chairs, but I left them out or it would have been too busy.  The bar area to the back right is luminous with green lights from neon.

The photos were taken around Christmas time.
