When I walked into Taco Jalisco's last week I immediately saw and knew I would draw this pink haired young woman. She was sitting at a table alone with a large art pad and she was doing a zen tangle with black Sharpie marker pen! She saw me take out my art journal and we shared a knowing smile.
I don't know that she knew I was drawing HER, as she didn't pay me much attention after that first nod. But draw her I did and the other women and girl surrounding her. I couldn't wait to get home to paint that bright pink/purple hair!
We picked up my two eight year old grand children on Saturday morning and brought them home for a sleepover and first night of Chanukah. I gave them one gift early so they could use them all day if they wanted to: They each got an art journal like the ones grandma uses and a good drawing pen to go with it
and they both sat down to draw immediately. I of course sat to draw them.
We have to call these "age progressive" drawings as they look quite a bit older than their eight years.
It's okay, they will grow into these drawings over time. ;-)
It was a wonderful Chanukah celebration and just special fun loving time having them at our house to ourselves!
On Sunday night their parents came to pick them up and I took them all out to dinner at Tacos Jalisco. They got to meet Carlos who was working that night. And he got to meet my family. That was sweet.
On Tuesday I was back at my usual spot drawing the patrons eating their lunches as I ate my "One fish Taco and Half an Order of Guacamole"! Hummmm, sounds like a good title for a book don't you think?
