Off site galaxy sketches and Uganda sketches

NGC 253/stippling pastel sketch and story--go to astronomical inspirational stories and sketches; it is currently the top item on the left column
NGC 7331/pastel sketch and story--same location but next item down
Uganda teacher sketches and Thailand couple and first sketches: go to Teacher/Leader galleries to see their pictures and first sketches
We return to Uganda in a couple weeks to give out awards to students. We had over 100 sketches sent to us to judge. It took a 3-person team about 100 hours to do the judging, provide comments, make awards, etc. but it was fun. And, reports indicate they are continuing to develop their abilities. We will be training them some more and also training a Kenyan ministry when we go.

Thank you for this post. I followed it to your website. Very nice. It was such a great pleasure to see your sketches again. I for one miss your posts here.
Best wishes on your return trip to Uganda.

It is nice to see your sketch work again, as we have all missed your posts for some time here now.
I was able to take some time and read much of your site. It humbled me as I recalled doing some similar work for the local schools and public while I spent the better half of a year in the Fiji Islands, 2003 ~ 2004 and realized how much I miss that now. I related closely to your beautiful pastel sketch of NGC 253 as I observed it nearly straight overhead at 17 Â½ degrees south latitude of the equator from Fiji in October 2003. Unfortunately I was on a sabbatical from sketching then.
It is a great and noble service that you two are providing for those students. I am sure it has changed their lives and community for the better.
Best wishes for your continued work and travels,

Sorry I cannot put them here but linking faith in God, which we always do, with sketching and observing is forbidden here as well as in sketches on CN.
It's still a very good day to give thanks.
