Buy the bourbon, forget the garnishes

Today was finally warm enough to venture out, feel the sun and sketch. The plan worked to perfection.

Woodford Reserve Distillery ( gives damn nice tours. The smell of fermenting mash, history of the distillery and of course, a bourbon flight with 2 of their tasty beverages.

If in Kentucky, I recommend visiting any of the distilleries. Four Roses ( is tops and of course, Maker’s Mark is a crowd favorite. (

Beware of the gift shops. Cherries are $18 dollars for a small jar. Buy the bourbon, forget the garnishes.

I volunteer as a design and communications consultant with Family Scholar House in Louisville, Kentucky, the Democratic Socialists of America and teach children with emotional and developmental disabilities.

I have degrees in art and was an art director for 30 years.


  1. Sounds like a good time! Was this sketch your main focus, or was it just one of a collection you did? You always choose such out-of-the-way objects–what…draws you to draw something?


    • Happy Sunday and maybe school is open tomorrow.

      Yes, it will be part of a series. I am “drawn” to the design; flat out. If it is interesting to my eye and is not from “the publicity photos”, I claim it mine.

      There were so many things to see, such as the ceilings, walls and textures.
