 Sitting in a fat chair

From across the room it struck me that
this thin man was in a fat chair.  In actual
fact the chair was probably thinner, and
he may have been more substantial, but
my eyes were seeing what I drew.  I
suppose in the final analysis hauling out
your sketchbook at a party, is a bit like
talking on your cell phone.  I hope that
my fellow party goers didn't think I was
being rude.

The jury is out on that one.

Have a working-on-the-work-you-love day.
