Spring Has Sprung – Almost

It’s been rainy and windy for the past couple days but it was sunny today, though we still had 30 km/h winds.  It had reached 5C as I headed out for a walk, but the wind made it feel much colder.  As I walked I talked to the trees, asking them why they hadn’t started to bud since it was already mid-April.  They just shook their heads in the wind and said, “Are you kidding me?”

But I was determined to do some walking and, the optimist in me thought about sketching.  I walked for over an hour and was on my way home when I saw a possibility.  I tucked myself into the entrance of a building and out of the wind.  I was still in the sun though giving me the best shot at not freezing to death.  I started sketching a church steeple that’s associated with the hospital near my house.  I worked as quickly as I could and this is the result.  Hope you like it.  Hope it gets warmer sometime soon.

    Very nice! And very blue, which makes me wonder about the color of your toes by the time you finished. 😉

    • Thanks. We’re in a warm spell that they say won’t last but I had a ball sketching outdoors yesterday. Hope to repeat today but they’re predicting rain 🙁
