Cold, cold

My neighbour’s yard, sketched on a very cold day, through the fog of a terrible cold. I haven’t taken a sick day in years but I stayed home today to get over this, and since I don’t really know how to do nothing, I sketched. The view through the fallen fence to the next yard is best at the end of the afternoon when the shadows are long. When I look at this now, it seems a bit fuzzy, which perfectly matches how I feel today.

    Oh I do hope it is just a cold and not the flu-like thing I had at end of December. I hope sketching made you feel a bit better. What a great sketch — really captures the cool winter light. Feel better soon!


    • I just talked to a friend who is a pathologist in the hospital. She says there’s hardly any flu this winter but there are some terrible viruses going around, so I guess that’s what I have. No fever, just one massive head cold. Ugh. Tomorrow may be a sick day too.
