Happy New Year to each and every one of you!!!!

I have missed you and missed documenting my days. I was unable to complete my Singploration with you all, and this semester was just CRAZY! I missed doing this a lot! My cousin mentioned to me this holiday about Project 365. That is, taking one photo per day in your life. I thought it may be a happy medium for me as my semester will be crazy again. I may not post just one photo, but maybe limit myself to 5 photos per day, should one photo not do me justice on a particular day. So here goes…

Again, I missed doing this and I missed you all!

I went home (Trinidad) this Christmas vacation to do field research for my thesis. I spent Old Years Day (what some call New Years Eve) with my family. The photo above is that of the garden behind my family home. So lush, so green. Sugarcane, mangoes, cherries.

The street in front our home. So well manicured, clean, and green…

My cousin’s dog, Spot! This was my first time meeting him. Isn’t he a beaut! He was quick to lay down to have his stomach rubbed.. looking at me with those come-hither eyes, and an irresistible nose…

“I think I’m in love”.. LOL

My other cousin’s dog, Squingy. Do not ask me about his name, my uncle named him.. These doggies (googies) just love tummy rubs! Look at him! While I am balancing on one leg he is smiling in glee..

“Oh that was goooood!!” He says to me.

St. Mary's Anglican Church - Tacarigua, Trinidad

This is a negative of the St. Mary’s Anglican Church in Tacarigua, Trinidad. I have been a bit busy over the past few days since my move… I have been able to get some sketching done, but I want to paint them before posting them.. hence the delay. You can stay informed of my activities via my Visual Journals on Flickr.

Building on the corner of Pembroke & New Sts. in Port of Spain, Trinidad

This is Day Two of my “negative week” where I post negatives of some of my drawings. Above is a sketch of two buildings, a restored building on the left that now houses an office, and the one on the right a small home. I love the deeply recessed windows and doors , the louvers, the clerestory windows and louvers, and the steep roof. Well done!

Trinidad & Tobago Water Taxi

This is a sketch I did at the Port of Spain waterfront yesterday. While sitting there sketching, I did a quick one of the water taxi before it pulled off. I added color in Photoshop…hence the look.

The 30th World Wide SketchCrawl is coming up this Saturday, January 22nd 2011. I invite fellow sketchers to join me, my location will be Port of Spain, Trinidad.
