    1. Maybe next year, Charles, or the next.

  3. Great sketching, Oscar. At 43 (and inspired by Kyle J. Knapp) I've taken up drawing and it looks terrible. But I'm still trying and even bought a book by Philip Berrill called Sketching: the easy way. So, hopefully, I will improve. Enjoying the hell out of the pastime though.

  4. David, Good luck on the drawing! You'll have to post some when you think you are ready. I don't do enough of it to get very professional, just a fun pastime.
