Went out with my sketching group on Sunday, August 30th, 2015 to sketch Franklin Castle on the near west side of Cleveland. After a quick sketch on that location, I walked down a few blocks to a house I saw on a corner with giant sunflowers. This was a nice and quiet location with some decent shade. Although there were threats of rain and thunderstorms, during our outing we were pretty rain free. It had only started to sprinkle as we were all packing up.

The chandelier was installed this year over the intersection of Euclid Ave and East 14th. It's really big, and a lot of people showed up the night of the first light up. It's really stricking, and the buildings around there are very detailed and historic. I think that's why so many people showed up to sketch that day.

I've been wanting to draw this little place for a long time. It's in the corner of a shopping strip parking lot, facing the street, it's back to the parking lot. I just love how half of it looks like a dog house and has two howling dogs painted on it.
It's one of those places that I couldn't get any other sketchers to join me at, so I went myself this morning.
I'm going to run out of days where it's comfortable to sketch soon. Today, it wasn't cold, but I did have to wear a serious coat. You know the winter weather is coming, look at the ad I drew for a coat that is "like a down jacket, but stronger."
The rear end of a red car you see, that's mine.

Here's another house within walking distance of where I live. I really like how the siding is vertical, nice and different from most houses around here.

The tan house on the left is where I live, and the green house on the right is another house on the street. This is a short street, and it'd be great to sketch them all, but so many of them are almost completely obstructed by trees. That's a good thing, usually, unless you want to get a good sketch of it from across the street.
