Once again, I'm having a crazy busy week. I called the contra dance weekend in Little Rock this past weekend, so I didn't get any painting done. I did, however, take a break in the afternoon and listen to part of the Cardinals game on the radio while I did a few pencil sketches from the steps of the church we were dancing at. All three of these sketches were done from that same spot on the steps. There's always something to draw, and usually several somethings, wherever you are. Elizabeth Alley and the Memphis Urban Sketchers have taught me to be more alive to sketching possibilities everywhere.
