More Business Travel

Spent a couple days in Tulsa on business, in the downtown area. They were getting ready for their MayFest celebration, but it wasn't going yet. From a travelers perspective, downtown is dead after 5 p.m. I walked around for supper and found nothing. Not many people, few cars. So I walked back to the hotel to eat. The misty overcast funk didn't inspire me to sketch anything, either. On the drive home, though, I found a little oasis in Chanute, KS. I love small towns that are putting some effort into staying viable. Their downtown development efforts were visible. Made a nice place for a supper break . . . and a sketch. For dessert I had their yogurt shake (Tornado) with crushed Captain Crunch cereal. New combo to me. Mmmm! They even have a web presence at www.grandmasubs.com. I sketched as some storms blew by, then headed home.

as usual, the jouranl story is discribed well and the sketch of the Gamma's place also very well done--what I want to know is when you got home did you have a piece of Rhubarb Pie? One of my favorites in the long list of pies I like. I spent my honeymoom in Tulsa back when the pony express would drop off packets of much anticipated mail from the East coast.

Another great sketch. Next time you're going to be in Oklahoma, email me - maybe we can meet up. Tulsa is only 1 1/2 hours away from me.

It's nice to be introduced to your art via the EDM list group. You pay close attention to detail while at the same time making details fun and interesting. Good on you.

it's hard to find a place to eat downtown in tulsa even during the day time! it's crazy. a person would think that downtown would have some things to pull people down there after work hours . . . but not in that town!
