Sunday sketches

It's been awhile. With an overflowing work schedule and other pressures, I've found it easy to excuse myself from taking the time to draw. But my daughter Nora is visiting from Guadalajara, and her early morning kayaking excursion with Ina meant that I needed to occupy myself outdoors for awhile, so a couple of sketches. Then a late lunch visit with Neill and Nora absorbed in conversation about the technical aspects of photography gave me an opportunity to sit out on the balcony and do another little study, having been primed by my morning interlude.

As important as it is to keep my tools sharp, it's hard to maintain the discipline.
