Old City Hall
Autumn is almost done and winter is fast approaching. As much as I enjoy being out and about in the winter weather sketching has to take a back seat, in a warm building if possible !
So this week we began a search for places with a view through a window.
A friend suggested Planet Bean which not only serves good coffee but also has window seats (if you can secure one) we did and had a view of the old City Hall across the street.
It's interesting how the need to put down on paper what you see and feel, how 'Art' grabs hold of you and won't let go.
As I have mentioned I put down my brushes in the mid 1990's but they knew that one day they would be put back to use and sat quietly waiting in a corner of a closet, As time passed their whispers grew more insistent and here we are again seeking out places and things to sketch and draw. Luckily you don't have to go far.
Remember the words of Paul Strand …
“The artist's world is limitless. It can be found anywhere, far from where he lives or a few feet away. It is always on his doorstep”. ~Paul Strand
