With A Spring In My Step

It’s amazing!  As I headed for the museum I couldn’t believe it.  Spring had really sprung.  The sun was out.  It wasn’t windy.  And it was warm.  Well, maybe not warm by normal standards.  It was 47F, but compared to what we’ve been experienced it was warm.

I’d told Yvan that I’d meet him at the museum but I couldn’t resist stopping in the park in front of the train station to draw a cool kiosk that resides there.  I was about 20 minutes late to the museum but it was worth it.  It felt sooooooo good to be sketching outdoors.

I spent about an hour sketching at the museum and decided that I “needed” to get back outside to enjoy the sunshine.  I was almost giddy as I walked the town, looking for things to sketch.  But I didn’t want to stop to draw.  I was having too much fun wandering, taking inventory of my city, making a mental list of things I want to sketch.  In the end, I only did a couple really quick sketches but I walked nearly nine kilometers.  It was sooooo fun, but I was beat by the end of the day.  It’s gonna be a fun summer.
