Some drawings are dated, '80 or '81. Sketches are mostly of mountainous landscapes or details of Islamic architectural ornamentations, mostly in pencil though some have watercolor accents (one landscape is done in full color). Several landscapes in pencil have notes indicating how different areas should be colored. One landscape is labeled "Edmonds pond." Two pages depict Middle Eastern men, some playing instruments.
