Sticks In The Water

I was asked by a member of the Dallas Park and Recreation Board to do a drawing for Lake Highlands North Recreation Center in northeast Dallas. Back in my previous life I had worked there for several years ( It provided me some of my life’s most enjoyable experiences. So I was happy to do the drawing.

I wanted to do something that had meaning to me but was also specific to that park. And I wanted children in the drawing. I looked through my photos for inspiration and came across a time when my grandkids were at “Granddad’s Park” having fun poking sticks in the water of the park’s pond. Perfect! I combined elements of various photos and came up with a composition I liked (including using one grandkid twice – I actually have only four grandkids).
