Ice Fishing

What's he fishing for?

Looking for love perhaps?

that smudgy thing in the middle of the drawing is a stick someone
had thrown to test the thickness of the ice
I too was out on the ice this morning.

I start my day rather early by working in my studio before the house wakes up. By 7:00 or 8:00, I'm ready for a change of scenery and I usually take a walk. Like many times before, I came down to the dam on the Charles River in South Natick. I've drawn this place many times.

It was freezing and I looked for a new vantage point to take my mind off the cold. I wandered out on the ice a bit upstream and sketched the dam as perhaps a goose might see it. It's not a very interesting drawing but I was happy that I got the trees and various architectural things in the right places and proportions in the background. Anyway, here's the drawing (and you can stop holding your breath; the ice was strong!)

Have a good week!


I'd love to hear from you…
