Drawing on a hot day

(This was meant to be a
sketch, but I could see
myself doing more 
work on it.)

This wasn't a day for going for a walk.  It was very hot. Instead I
continued the photo sorting and deleting I started yesterday, making
space on my older computer, which is much better and simpler for
email than my new one, but doesn't have enough memory.

So I wanted to draw. I've had a photo of a wonderful docent
I met at the MoMA a few years ago.  It's a hard job.  Most of
the time the docent is just standing watching people go by. But
if you have a question, they know so much about the art they
look at every day. That was true of this man, who posed for me
when I asked. 

I may work on it a little more. I was feeling very tired, and drawing him,
and thinking about the amazing art in the MoMA in New York
cheered me up immensely.

Have a loving your life day.
