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.

A fine use of otherwise wasted time- I like your sketch, but MAN, she looks reeeaaaallly bored! *grins*

Hi hie, I have to agree with Christeen, she looks so bored, but sometimes that is a good thing, because bored people tend to just sit and stare in front of them!
Great skeching.

I plan on taking my sketchbook to the doc's office next time. I usually take a book to read, but have decided I need more practice drawing - great idea!

Amen! This has been my mantra for the last few weeks.

I absolutely agree. Never leave home without the sketchbook! Unfortunately... while at the pediatrician my own and others don't hold still. Good for ten second studies of form.
