I haven't broken out my watercolors in a long time. The colored pencils are so addictive for me. There is a nice little outdoor restaurant near me on 9th street. It's called the Cloister. I sat and drew this little still life. It's a secretive joint, a bit tucked away. I was drawing just outside the gates to enter. People would stop to see what I was doing and then notice the restaurant. I felt like I was driving traffic into the place. Everyone would say the same thing, "I never noticed this place before." that is until sketchboy sat out front, facing into the garden.
