Rainy Days and Mondays...365 Days Of Drawing

Rainy days and Mondays always get me down. I can just hear Karen Carpenter still singing that line.

This little drawing with wash, "London, Calling", I had fun with. Trying to catch the reflections on the pavement and movement of Dapper Dan chap walking through, no doubt on his way straight to the pub.

I dedicate this post and today's photo of my wedding anniversary roses to my colleague Annie Waterhouse,, an all-around artist of wonderful sensitivity who suddenly passed away last Monday in Malibu at only 55 years old.

Her passing is a reminder to live for the day, especially a Monday, live it graciously, be kind to one's friends, family, animals, strangers, and the planet, and strive for the best in our art. Annie did all of that with a glowing smile and she will be missed.
