So by this time on the cruise I’m food drunk most of the day, and it was a bit of a struggle to take some time to do a drawing, so today’s drawing is a bit lacking.


Some days I have so much energy for art that I can’t stop doing something. That was not today. I sat at the Ocean bar, picked a random sculpture of a lion and began to draw it. I knew that I was lacking energy, so my main goal here was to do at least 30 minutes of observation. I ended up drawing some flowers also.


On this day we ported in Sitka Alaska. Here is a picture of the Westerdam while we were on a tender that was taking us to the dock.


Today’s excursion was awesome! For the second time in my life we snorkeled in Alaska. For obvious reasons I do not have pictures of all the awesome sea life we experienced under the ocean.


Sitka was a nice town, lots of shops with native art, and of course beautiful scenery.


Another picture at night from our balcony.


Here is a huge mural they had next to one of the bars on the ship, like I said there was amazing art all over this ship.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
