A fabulous day -- and chance encounters

Journal Sketch

Our friend in the Maritimes, Ian Fancey, had an expression, that
I'm sure some people would want to apply to me -- "that woman
could talk the bark off a tree!" He might have said that about
me on the weekend, when we were picking up wraps at a take
out restaurant, and the girl in this image was there.  Everyone was
wearing jeans and T-shirts, and this girl was in a sequinned long
formal dress.

I asked her if I could take her picture because I'm an artist, and
she said,"yes!" Her name is Ini, and this is a fast sketch I did this
morning.  It isn't accurate.  I'll have to try again, but it's a start.
Drawing with line drawing in ink is a challenge because there's 
no correcting it.  You just move forward and do your best.

I like the drawing. And Ini if you're reading this, I will do a better
one in the future, and someday maybe get to paint a full
length painting with that wonderful dress.  I hope you had
a magnificent day.

Have a loving your life day.
