It was a good and peculiar day today. A friend came by to talk about
20 feet away standing on my lawn in full sunshine.  And it was raining
on me. She suggested that we cross the street.  We did and stayed far
apart.There was no rain on that side of the street.  Bizarre.  

I worked on a bunch of different drawings and paintings, and this
is one of them. I think it’s finished. After you start working with
acrylic ink, it’s hard to go back to pure watercolour again. This
is a combination of watercolour and acrylic ink. And the ink gives
it its punch. 

I’m going to make it short today. I promise to have more to say
tomorrow, and more to show you.

Take care and stay safe and stay healthy. Please wear a mask and protect
