Courses in life seldom run straight. Like a river or creek they bend against time. I work steadily toward my “big painting” project and yet it seems to be standing still at present. In between times I am also beginning to draw landscapes outdoors in oil pastel. I made this drawing quickly.
Might be going out again today. These drawings — at present — aren’t ones that I set out to make — not yet — not so far. They are instead things that I do while I’m waiting around for someone else. So sometimes when I am on someone else’s schedule, I still draw. I am finding more and more that bits of time gathered here and there are useful for seeing. I probably never would have made this drawing had I not found myself momentarily at loose ends.
And you never know where these things lead.
