I’ve been looking forward to working outdoors some with the warming season.  My plans hit a little snag however:  I caught a cold.  So today I work en plein maison, which would be something I just made up, and it’s the opposite of en plein air.  Working en plein maison on a nice day means pushing a crayon around in a desultory way while remaining at all times within arm’s reach of a coffee cup and a box of Kleenex.

Here’s two efforts at drawing, done from pictures in books.  Van Gogh said you have to suffer for art.  Tell me about it.  Achoo!  Slogging right along …
