It is hard to believe that 2021, this year that we looked forward to with such anticipation, is already half over. Washington State is now pretty much back to normal, masks and such still used by some, most trusting the vaccine or just not concerned – the change is quite welcome.
It has been a long time since I have done any Sumi style painting, I downloaded a brush set for my Procreate and gave them a try.
Sunday the temps started rising to record numbers. From my deck I watched a parade of folks getting out early for their walks and jogs.
Monday was over 100F, extremely rare for us Puget Sound folks.
Our daughter was in town briefly, we went to the Sculpture Garden in Seattle, Smith Tower was in the distance. I sketched this standing on the overpass while Tricia wandered on taking photos.
Wednesday, as seems to be my new norm, I met up with Tricia at South Lake Union. Tapster Seattle is a new spot, I sat on the deck and sketched Google folks eating lunch in the sun.
It was a good week, a bit hectic at times, but good. I have discovered that I have come accustomed to the simple routine that developed during the COVID shutdowns, time to get reenergized.
Keep exploring your world, and keep on sketching.
