Sketching is the best thing to do when you're waiting for your car in the shop. I hung out here in front of "Horn Photo" in Fresno, in what I think is called the Villagio shopping area off of Blackstone and sketched from my car. Once again, the kids I teach in the area weren't allowed to have recess because the air quality was so bad. I feel bad for them. It reminds me of growing up in LA county, when the "breath mobile" would come by and I would get free breathing tests. Ugh.
