11:00 pm sketching
What do you sketch for your daily commitment after a workday that ends after 10:00 PM and you crawl into a rented bed, sans contact lenses, with nothing but your sketchbook, wallet, and pencil?
The room I was in at the B&B last night wasn't my ususal one, so I didn't have a desk, lighting, or anything close enough to me to SEE without my contact lenses, so all I could do was prowl around my wallet to uncover SOMETHING I might have at hand that I could hold 2" from my nose to sketch.
I found a photo of my grandson taking his wobbly first steps into my arms ... and decided that fatigue be darned, I was going to sketch! So here's what happens after a 15-hour workday and a commitment to sketch SOMETHING no matter what!
I'll be writing grants for the next two days -- BUT I should have at least a bit longer to sketch! I HOPE!
