True Story Time
This is a painting of "The Couple" who I have been drawing at Taco Jalisco's over the past nine months. Rarely has anyone come up to me while I am drawing or asked about my drawing while I am there. It's happened maybe twice in all this time.
But last week, The Guy from the Couple walked by my table and said "something" about my "drawing". The juke box was blaring music and I am hard of hearing so I didn't catch exactly what he said...but it was something about the drawing. They sat down at the table right next to mine, but with their backs to my side.
After they were seated I said "I wasn't aware that you were aware that I have been drawing here"... and he said, "Yes, ....and you're good!"
Well, that just really felt nice to hear!
Later, after I had finished eating and drawing THEM once more as you can see above, I stopped at their table and said: "I just want you to know that YOU are my favorite couple to draw!" I got big smiles back. I said "But I had no idea you knew I was drawing at all, I really thought I was quite invisible!" She then said to me "No, and you also like Jodi Picoult!" I said "How do you know THAT?" She said "Because you used to come in here and read all the time and it was always the same author!" I laughed and said, "That was so long ago! I finished all of her books so I had to take up drawing instead. You obviously have been observing me much longer than I have been observing you!"
It was fun to talk and laugh with "My Favorite Couple to draw" at Taco Jalisco's on Tuesday!
