I have been neglecting my sketchbook lately. My spring sketchbook has evolved into a summer sketchbook, which is okay, now that we are fully into summertime. Summer here in our Southern mountains has been wet. We have had a lot of rain. And then more rain. Overflowing creeks and rivers, flooded roadways, and dark, gray skies have been the usual routine this summer. Between rain showers on Saturday I went into the yard to collect a few flowers for our table.
Monday brought a break from the rain with blue skies and puffy white clouds. While Kiddo played tennis I took the opportunity to sketch the sky from a view beyond the tennis courts. It was a pleasure to simply be outdoors on a summer day.
