afternoon 2

Hot on the trail of Summer, my friend Kathy and I sketched what we saw.

We were in the back of a very old mansion that used to be the University of Louisville School of Music. I was a student a long time ago, and have never forgotten the textured halls and tapestries on the walls. (http://www.lpts.edu/event-venues/gardencourt)

gnarl 2

What a great word! Gnarl perfectly describes the tree I stared at yesterday, while drinking a Coke and sketching. The gnarl has to have been years in the making, possibly without meddlesome pruning by “management”.

The time spent observing, was the perfect ending to a perfect day of food, weather and friends.

I debated leaving the drawing colorless, allowing the viewer to fill in the blanks. Possibly I should have.
