I was sitting sketching in the corridor the other day - a banana tree - braving the curious stares of my fellow workers - wonderful comments included "Its so nice to have a hobby" and "Could you draw me?" and "You're so talented" on looking at what looked like a squiggle on a scrap of paper! All I could do not to burst out laughing!
Seriously, I can't wait to get back to some serious work. The light here is so beautiful, wonderful blue shadows in the evening and early morning. Wish I thought there was any chance of painting plein aire, either without being imprisoned or without frying in the heat!

I cannot paint the sun on the desert on a bright summer morning, but maybe in terms of paint color I can convey to you my experience ............. Georgia O'Keefe
