Another Tremont House

Here's another house within walking distance of where I live.  I really like how the siding is vertical, nice and different from most houses around here.

Clover Avenue

The tan house on the left is where I live, and the green house on the right is another house on the street.  This is a short street, and it'd be great to sketch them all, but so many of them are almost completely obstructed by trees.  That's a good thing, usually, unless you want to get a good sketch of it from across the street.

Scranton Road House

This house is on Scranton Road in the Tremont area of the city.  There are a lot of houses of this style, but they all look different.  This one is one of my favorites.  It was such a nice morning today to be outside and sketching, so I "jumped" at the chance.  And, by "jumped," I mean that it took me a bit to get moving this morning, but it's always one of those things that I'm happier when I've gone out and sketched, than if I didn't. 

The sun was getting high in the sky, making it a bit hard to see toward the end, but as always, people were very nice when I'm out and sketching.

It was weird, but then I ran a couple errands, and everyone out and about in Tremont and Ohio City were all so nice today.  At the grocery store, people were dancing around the aisles to the store's music and chatting up with each other.  When I went to go to the bakery (which was closed), people were stopping to wave me in and out of traffic.  The guy at the car wash let me go before him. 

You can't beat these final nice days of the year.  Everyone's a little nicer.
