My daughter C and I went out sketching on Saturday. First, we went to a restaurant adapted from an old train station and train car that once belonged to her late father, my former husband. I drew a couple sitting at the bar who saw me sketching them. They were all teary eyed when they saw the sketch and asked if they could have it---awww. So, I'll give it to them this week. C and I next headed for a vintage clothing shop across the street, where she (mostly) browsed and I (entirely) sketched. Later this week, I will post one or two drawings I have to do for a sketchbook exchange (more about this later) and some photos of my garden, which is happy after some April showers. Then I'm going to take a couple of weeks break from blogging. I haven't really taken a break in the three+ years I've been Laurelining and, like the tailor of Gloucester, dear buddies, I'm worn to a threadpaper. I'm going to work in the garden, paint, draw with friends here, and spend time with family and other friends. Good idea, eh?
Here, now, are those sketches!
