I just love walking and exploring, because you can always find the neatest little gems to sketch. And, it's sometimes something that seems perfectly ordinary, like this row of townhouses.
I did get nervous while sketching, because two people came along and were going to go grocery shopping, and one asked the other, "Should we take the truck or walk?" I was drawing the green SUV at the time, and I was worried that they were going to haul it away. But, they decided to walk. . . . .Plus, that might not have been their truck anyhow.

Not far from where I live now on the near west side is this great warehouse with a terrific water tower on top. I've driven by it for years, and I've always wanted to sketch it. And, as I've learned in the past, never put these things off, because things get torn down with no notice or can burn down.
