Deep Eddy

Deep Eddy is the oldest swimming pool in Texas. The water comes from a well and is not chlorinated. Water temperature ranges from 65 degrees to 75 degrees. Early in the morning, I saw one man swimming in a wet suit.

There is a mosaic wall.

But I wasn’t there to swim. I was there with a handful of other artists. I sketched in pencil and the others painted with watercolors. We scattered all around the pool area and went about our business creating art.

From my vantage point, this is what I saw when I sketched.

My sketch doesn’t quite look like the photo. Oh, well.

I purposely left out some items, like the trash can. And people. I don’t know how to sketch people yet. Or trees. Or stairs. Or swim lanes. But I was glad I went and my inner 7-year old artist was really happy.
