Drawing of 1937 Fishing Bridge beach at Yellowstone Park

For "Drawing Day 2008," I chose to draw from an old photograph taken in 1937. It shows three children sitting on the beach at Yellowstone Park's Fishing Bridge area, at the north end of Yellowstone Lake. This area is of the park is sentimental to me, partly because it has family history going back more than 70 years! The child on the far right is my father-in-law, once a Yellowstone Park ranger, and the other two are his sisters. His father, in turn, was a ranger naturalist for 15 summers, at this very spot, Fishing Bridge.

Drawing Day is an annual effort to post one million drawings on their web site,

I can smell the pine and hear the water lapping against the shore...
