I did an impulsive thing. One day I took a quick trip to Ponte Vedra, Florida to see one of my favorite musicians perform. Next day, I flew back.
I wanted to sketch Richard Thompson as he was singing and playing his guitar, but a Big Hair eruption in the woman who sat down front of me at the last minute cut out all the light that had been shining down on my sketchbook.
As a friend said, it's sometimes better just to experience than to document.
But I did manage an airport sketch
and two restaurant scenes.
Have you ever tried Fried Gator Tail with Cowgill’s Datil Pepper Aioli? Me, neither, but you can order some at the wonderful Palm Valley Fish Camp where we had other delicious food, served amiably and well.
When I finished this last sketch, I thought 'where have I seen this before?' And then I remembered this sketch from 2009.
Not the same, but not altogether different. At least the fish look more blasé about the whole situation!
