I was helping a friend with her Rummage sale. The first couple of hours we made 25 cents. What do people do when they have time to do nothing? My friend took a nap. She was selling a huge old overstuffed lounge chair. I sketched these steps to the backyard across the street. The air was cool, birds were singing and I could hear the neighbors getting ready for church. I love to just observe nature and experience the morning.

Love how you've left areas for the eye to fill in rather than providing all the detail. I'd also have to say you were quite clever to be prepared to sketch! I always get there and then remember I wanted to bring sketching materials.

I hope all is well?
This drawing is great you are such a talented artist, you make me want to pick up a pencil and start straight away!
