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.
