Tuesday, May 30.

           Tonight we had the model who posed for us on March 21. She has now graduated from Texas Tech.
           I missed the Tuesday Night Life Drawing group last week. Tonight I ordered some more art supplies.
           I have to contact one of my models tomorrow to see if she is still interested in modeling on the caprock for me on June 9 with the full moon rising at sunset.
           Tomorrow at work I have to photograph more art prints.

           Tonight we had a model who I have not drawn this year, so it was good to see her. Also, I got to visit with an artist I have not seen in quite a while. My drawing is improving. It still isn't back up to my previous level.
          I have to photograph more art prints and a portfolio tomorrow at work.

Tuesday, May 9.

           Tonight we had a model who has become a regular for us because she does an excellent job modeling for us. We had a nice group of 13 of our members present. Bob and Jane Ann Skibell furnished some excellent food tonight, as did Mike and Toni.
          I have to finish photographing a large group of art prints tomorrow at the Museum.
 Tomorrow I also need to schedule a model for June 9. I had hoped to go out and photograph with the full moon tomorrow; however, it doesn't look like our weather is going to co-operate.
          One of my models should be in to stay with me for a week or two soon. It will be good to see her again. She stayed with me for a couple of weeks in January after I got out of intensive care.

           It was probably the last time out model will work with us as the is moving out of Lubbock. She always did a very good job of modelling for our Tuesday Night Life Drawing group. 
          It was nice to see Bob Skibell back at drawing in quite a while. Kiki Negewo was also attending for the first time in a long while. We had a very nice group at drawing tonight.
          I am getting back into the "art scene". It was nice to visit with many friends at the Art on the Llano exhibit at the Museum of Texas Tech last Saturday and Sunday. I recently made a new walking cane from a gemsbock horn and an allosaurus claw cast. I have got to get to work on some jewelry also. I have the raw material, I just have to find time. Dino Day is this coming Saturday.

           It was nice to get back to our regular schedule after an Easter break. We had a good group at Tuesday Night Life Drawing, not big but a nice group. We had a model who has been modeling for us regularly lately. She does an excellent job. I didn't recognize her at first because she had totally changed her hair color and had it put up in a different style. Looking forward to the Lubbock Arts Festival this coming weekend and Art on the Llano at the Museum of Texas Tech the following weekend.

           I am not sure if I will be able to participate next week as I will have a visiting researcher in Lubbock and am not sure when I have to drive him to the airport next Tuesday.

           It was nice to get back to our regular schedule after spring break. We had a good group at TNLD. The model tonight has been working with us since she started school at Tech. She always does a good job modeling. She is getting ready to graduate from Texas Tech this May. Fortunate for us, she is going to hang around Lubbock for another year and will be available to model for us.

           Tuesday Night Life drawing was good tonight. We had the same model as last week. Again she did very dynamic poses and is very personable. Again several artists created some very nice drawings. We won't be drawing next Tuesday because of spring break.

           Tuesday Night Life drawing was good tonight. We had the same model who did dynamic poses last week. We had a couple of new people draw with the group. There were a number of very nice pieces of drawing made tonight.

           Tuesday Night Life drawing was good tonight. We had a new model who did dynamic poses tonight. It is a small world as the model studied vertebrate paleontology for her Associates Degree. She was an excellent model. I am still practicing to improve my drawing back to previous levels.

           Tuesday Night Life drawing was good tonight. We had a model who did some dynamic poses. Something we haven't had for a while. She has been modeling for us for about eight or nine years and always does an excellent job. Now that she has more free time, it sounds like she will be modeling for us more regularly for a while which is good.
           I still need a lot more work to get back to my previous level of drawing, but I am getting there. It looks like Wilhelm Künstler and I may be working on creating some opal jewelry this weekend.

Sunday, January 1.
            I almost didn't survive December as "Death Week" tried to do me in this year, but I am still alive and kicking. I will definitely be more heartless than I was in the past.
            Life is just a Jimmy Buffet song. Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes. Trip Around the Sun. Margaritaville. Bamma Breeze. Boat Drinks.
            I plan on doing a lot more artwork this year. I will be attending Tuesday Night Life Drawing more regularly. Looking forward to a productive year.
