It was the 24th June on a Wednesday.
I found myself having good coffee in a Footscray cafe whilst waiting for a family member at the Tattoo shop.
Trying to work smarter at sketching when out and about in my little journal and left the coffee I spilled on the page as all a part of it.
The man on the stool kept getting up and then down expressively chatting with his mate. I found this tricky and nearly felt brave enough to ask him to stay put for five but nah I didn’t as I actually was enjoying listening to their convo, think they were muso’s which was interesting to me.
I was overlooking yummy cakes in the sliding glass cabinet at the window looking out onto the street. The looseness of the ink appeals to me but think I prefer a pencil and some colour.
I do love my early Friday’s when I only work a half day. I’d mostly dash home, whip up a quick lunch for my home schoolers; but more often stop at my favourite Pattisiere and grab some homemade pies and a cake each for the boys and I. It’s time for school to go back next Tuesday but I will miss being with them on my half Friday’s.
I should do the housework then but will be happy to sit and draw at my little table that looks out to my little deck.
Many paths to take but we can be lead by a powerful pull that is all encompassing. It’s all up to us.
With so much Covid-19 every turn we look; I want to add some pretty to your day.
I have to paint you and immortalise your heroic selfless acts in that of rescuing our vulnerable, sick Koalas left to fend for themselves often on their own after our fires. You are the hero.
The form of these funny crustaceans like smallish warped monsters are very unique to watch and touch; (albeit tasty little critters).
