Another day of waiting rooms

It seems to be part of the aging process to spend more and more time in the waiting rooms of doctor offices either for oneself or accompanying another aging companion. The good news is that there are usually some very still models...the frustrating news is that we are all usually there for quite a while. I have, thank God, long passed the waits in pediatrician offices and now look around at fellow passengers on the ship of life with compassion and know that they are probably as bored as I might be without a sketch pad. Rule #1: never leave the house without a sketch book and pen.

EDM Challenge 133

This an EDM challenge...a peach. I continue to try to learn to manipulate water and pigment. Please forgive the wrinkles on the cheap sketch paper. This peach was so sweet...brought back memories of central Texas peaches...beautiful freestone peaches from Johnson City. I used to be able to buy a half bushel and would freeze some to eat in the winter. I don't know why they aren't available anymore.
The EDM challenges are so fun as they force me to really look at something ordinary.
