A way to meet

 A loop drawing I made over the weekend while  Lisa  was over. Did you know that Autodesk’s  SketchBook  app has  every Copic color ? I suppose most drawing apps have all the colors, but somehow seeing the swatches labeled according to the  markers I adore  made me feel like a kid in an art supply store.

Lisa had the idea that we could draw together, so we did. I plopped some just-washed cherries and grapes on the table—plus some napkins to dry our hands—and we dove in.

Drawing is a great way to spend time together. Who knew! We could each inch along quietly, occasionally admiring each other’s work, sharing bits and pieces from our lives and minds along the way. And at the end, we each had a souvenir we could share. I think we’ll do it again.
