Boise, Idaho – a jaunt to the hot dry side

I flew to Boise on Saturday to visit some family; and while I was there I had a little time to work in my journal. While sitting with my dear husband in Starbucks, I sketched him writing about the frustration of his niece having cancer — “Life isn’t fair”

At the niece’s house, the only good subject was the dog, so you see him here.

Later I went out on the hot porch, and sat with my hubby’s bicycle and drew it. Finally out on the road, on our way home, we stopped at a park in Baker City, Oregon, which was across the street from a museum. That’s where I found this wagon. In my journal, the bike and the wagon are side by side. I like the effect.

    I’ve seen you sketch. You are surprisingly fast — that requires confidence in the placement of your strokes. I especially like the meridian bike drawing. You could sell this on one of the online image stores.

    The art is stunning, Mimi. I’m curious about who you visited.

    Sending comforting thoughts your way. Like that you could ease the pain with sketches in your journal. Another wonderful thing about art.
