Road trip to Windsor

Considering the future

Yesterday we headed out bright and early
in the morning to visit our son Sam in
Windsor.  He's playing Mr. Henry Woodhouse
in the play Emma.  The performance was
delightful -- very pro, and Sam was perfect
in the role of a hypochondriac fussy father
who is against marriage.  It was very funny.
Christopher and Megan came along and we
all had a great time.

The weather in Windsor today was balmy.
We visited the marvellous Art Gallery of
Windsor, went for a walk, and had a super
(though long) trip home.  Here's a little
drawing I did of Sam on the iPad this
morning while we chatted briefly before
he headed off to do the early Sunday show.

It does not do him justice, but I like the
drawing anyway -- that's Detroit in the
background out the hotel window.

Have an enjoying-your-family's-talents day.

I'm so happy that you went on a road trip to see your Sam. You must have been so proud of him and his acting skill!

This drawing is lovely. You so have a strong talent for iPad drawing, and watercolour and acrylic and pen and ink and grey value painting....

Hope you have a great week painting!

Hi Melinda,

It was such a great time. Being with the whole family was just the best. Sam was fantastic in a role that took a lot of focus. I was so proud of him and also blown away at his skill.

Thanks for your kindness. The great thing about drawing with your finger, is that you can only do so much. I like that.
