outdoors for twenty minutes

fresh air - what a concept.
it was 'warm' today -
warm for this winter. 42 degrees.
back below freezing tomorrow so i went
to the "backyard" of my apartment building
and drew some of the dead plants
and furniture in the snow.


it felt good being out after so long


and took some photographs.

  1. I love the lawn furniture with the snow sketch and your photos evoke the possibility of spring.

    I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog too.

  2. Bracing fresh air can clear the befuddled brain of those with a cold and your drawing proves it. In Dutch we say: "bloed kruipt waar het niet gaan kan", which means if you like doing something, you WILL do it, and you clearly love what you do. Still looking at your travel pictures. Really good stuff.

  3. "Warm" is all relative isn't it? I thought it was warm yesterday too. My Aussie thermometer has been corrupted.

  9. Lovely work - and great photos too. I'm really drawn to that excellent vertical shot of brown leaves, 2nd to bottom. Love it!
