Waiting


Waiting, originally uploaded by billfulton2001.

In Safeway there are tables for people who want a place to drink their coffee or have a sandwich. I find it's a good place to have my coffee and sketch people. This old guy was waiting for someone to do his shopping.

Although logging isn't as prominent in this area as it used to be, there are still log trucks on the highways. This is one of the Foglio trucks.

Today is a Saturday and I don't have to preach tomorrow, so it's a real day off. This is a sketch of the Siuslaw River from Pritchard's Wayside, a place where you can pull off Glenada Road and be at the river's edge.

I drove to Eugene yesterday to see my spiritual director and to have breakfast with Chad. On the way back, I had to stop for construction on the North Fork bridge. So I made a sketch of this flagger while I waited. When I got home I colored it.

Paul Scott


Paul Scott, originally uploaded by billfulton2001.

Paul came to see us today. It's a very exciting time in his life because he just graduated from Oregon Institute of Technology with a degree in computer programming and he's looking for his first real job. He interviewed with a company last week and they gave him a computer problem to solve. He was working on it at his parents' house when the electricity went out. So he came over to our house to finish it up. He got it done and sent it in by e-mail. Within an hour he got a request to come in for a second interview. He was pretty pleased about that. How wonderful to share his successes!
This sketch makes him look too short....actually he's much taller.

Book Illustration

I got an 1855 folio edition of the Book of Common Prayer as a Christmas present from some parishioners. The book is lavishly illustrated with designs like this one. For my thank-you card, I copied this illustration from the book.

Potter's Tires
