Massachusetts and Maryland

We have been away from home for a month or so, visiting family in Baltimore and in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

I won’t be back till early May, but my husband is now home in New Hampshire and scanned
these drawings from the early part of our trip. Come back in mid-May to see the later ones.

Westford Common, Massachusetts, from the car window. A rainy day.
There was still snow on the ground. We lived in this town for many years when I was in grade school. Yes, that is a small cannon and a pile of cannon balls, Revolutionary War era.

O’Donnell Square, Canton, Baltimore, Maryland
I like the brightly painted buildings on a grey, rainy day. Early spring leaves.

Building on stilts is Baltimore’s World Trade Center.

It had been a hard winter, and the woman weeding the front garden was greatly enjoying herself!

Running late in April

I'm out of town right now, so the April post will be a bit late. But I've been drawing all the time, so there will be lots to see when you check back around the middle of the month!
