This is my first visit to the Baton Rouge Zoo since Bill Black, a.k.a. Buckskin Bill, passed away. He was a local celebrity that hosted a children show for decades. In the 1960s, he encouraged children to collect pennies to purchase an elephant because Baton Rouge needed a zoo. The kids collected enough pennies to buy two elephants. One of the elephants was named Penny.
The zoo no longer have elephants because the habit is not up to the new regulations. This has upset all the children that collected pennies.
I found these work of art at the Rural Life Museum today.
My second sketch book is full. Here are some samples from the book.
Still traveling. This morning I had time to draw a mandala.
I was wise enough this morning to stop when the drawing looked good, instead of trying to fill the page.
Nice day for a walk in the park.
From Long Beach to Waveland, Mississippi.
I just don’t know where Biloxi ends and Gulfport begins. Or, vise versa if you are coming from the west.
Sunny day on Alabama’s gulf coast.
Located south of Mobile, Alabama is a very nice place to stroll through a beautiful garden.
This is the park that host the annual Praise In The Park event. It looks different with 20,000 less people visiting.
