My Week in Art at the Pure Grain Bakery, Tacos Jalisco and Starbucks
A week ago Wednesday, I walked downtown to the Pure Grain Bakery for lunch. I chose to draw these two guys eating there, as I wanted that Christmas Tree in my drawing! I felt it was timely for the season, and also a way to show the time of year in my weekly/end of the year drawing!
On Thursday I ate at my usual Tacos Jalisco and was so happy to see the Purple--Haired woman there. She had changed her hair color to bright orange! This lovely woman, I've been told, is in her 80's! I love that she is keeping herself looking so wild and exciting! The gentleman behind her didn't seem to notice! And the other fellow is squeezing the life out of his burrito. He's looking in a completely different direction! But I saw her and I had to draw her!
[She is in my book with her Purple Hair!] *speaking of which I am about to click on send and send it to the publishers tomorrow morning!!!!
On Sunday I joined my husband on a short Sunday drive to a nearby town where he likes to go to Starbucks Coffee. There was a tiny Christmas tree on a table there too. The two women are sitting behind a glass window inside the shop. We are sitting at a table on the opposite side. The guy standing I could see well, as if the window was not there, and I just could not bear to draw the black line across his face. So you get to see him as I saw him. My latte and oatmeal cookie were both good.
We had a great Chanukah last week. I wish you all who celebrate a happy holiday season this and next week! And soon a happy NEW YEAR!!!!
