OK, I know this isn’t a painting but a drawing. But I liked it. These were tall, leggy, somewhat tired plants in the front yard of my therapist Lucy’s office. I was a bit early for an appt, and it was a nice November day, so I perched on an old lawn chair with my new sketchpad of gray paper and sketched away. I am challenged by a larger sheet (I like my little Moleskine — quick sketches) so it’s a good practice to take more time, consider the whole composition, and slow down. Pen on paper.
