For the past few days Erika and I have been enjoying the lovely weather out in the courtyard, reading and drawing our Dogwood. She sat reading on her blanket with book in hand while I sat amongst my pencils scribbling away. It’s been a lovely three days of relaxing. After all this time of drawing this isn’t where I’d like it to be, but it’s where it needs to be for me to see where to go with the next one. Tomorrow it is back to work and the true celebration of Memorial Day.
