This cold weather is making me long for summer at the beach, so here is a drawing of a lighthouse. Can’t you just smell the salty air and feel the warmth of the sun on your face?

Two big sport venues are coming up. The Australian Open happens on January 15 – 28. And then, next month, the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, Korea happens on February 9 – 28. Both of those sporting events are my super bowl. Needless to say, my Tivo DVR will be working overtime.

Figure skating is one of the many hot events to watch. The US has very strong figure skating teams, both men and women. My drawing is of a male figure skater, performing balancing moves.

Sadly, summer is almost over. Just relax, breathe and reminisce.

Happy Labor Day weekend everybody.

The Wimbledon finals happens this weekend. Venus Williams will try to make history by winning the women’s finals at the age of 37. On the men’s side, Federer will also return to the finals as a 36-year-old. Both players are defying the odds by showing the sport that 30 is the new 20.

My drawing, today, is inspired by Nadal’s aggressive forehand stance.

We are midway through the Wimbledon Championships and there is much more great Round 3 matches to come, including the big four – Nadal, Murray, Djokovic and Federer.

My drawing shows a player swinging a forehand motion with heavy topspin. Don’t underestimate smaller players in tennis. They can pack a big punch!
