One duck

pencil, ink
The eddy at the downstream end of the island is a good place for a mallard to rest and look for a bite to eat. The water level in the river has gone down and everyone seems to accept that this is winter and it's not so bad. So, better get to work. Keep the home fires burning and take comfort in the lengthening daylight.
Come to think of it, I hear the sparrows making noise next door. That's my summons. Bonne journée!

All the wonders of technology… the "wirelessness."

It should come as no surprise that they still need wires. And the wires are everywhere. Perhaps you don't really notice down here in the "civilized world." One of these wires goes down and we are extremely unhappy campers.

This message brought to you by the wires.

Christmas Day

Christmas Morning: All the world was quiet (unless you have small children) and it was a lovely time to go drawing at my usual spots. I hope you had a good holiday. You might put an extra helping of bird seed out.
These are all 18 x 24", pastel and ink.

Winter Welcome

So, winter is here. Not officially but in spirit; it's cold and snowy as you can see in last week's sketches below.
Winter followed me to Washington, D.C. over the weekend where my daughter was graduating from college. While she was having her picture taken at the Lincoln Memorial, I was sketching the fog-shrouded reflecting pool and what I could see of the Washington Monument. A flock of geese levitated and  decorated the air above the pool.
But when I returned I discovered that Natick had had a lot of rain over the weekend. The island was inundated and a big tree was stranded on top of the dam. This is good as far as I'm concerned. Maybe it will attract some ducks.
