View of the Harbor from the Red Cup Coffee House in Maine. (With its life-changing espresso and owner who is a ringer for Robert Downey Jr.)
Gesture sketches of a lady walking her tiny dog.
Busy day here but found this coffee shop sketch in a pile of papers.
Made while my sister and I waited for the Lascaux II ticket office to open. The 17,000 year old paintings and etchings were wonderful to see. So much skill and beauty in those animals moving across the walls. Incredible to see prehistoric evidence of our drive to tell stories and sort things out with art.
I enjoyed a beautiful outdoor lunch with friends and sunshine. On my plate was a squid, maybe more than one, with tentacles that curled with repeating shapes and variations in color and temperature-purple, pink, rose, orange that were hard to believe dazzling. The resulting sketch itself doesn’t convey my experience-doesn’t do the gorgeous creature justice, but the process did/does help me to digest all this beauty and I am grateful for that. (Also bean salad which I have sketched before.)
