wet weather sketchbook

I am a caregiver to a hip replacement patient and find that I have to put any drawing/painting on a backburner. Here's one I was able to get to.

Cold weather

I believe that I lost a young Meyer Lemon tree to the freezing temps here in LA. My agaves are all toast as well. Hopefully my mature citrus trees are o.k. The cold weather is great besides that.

Sick of the wind

I may boycott the weather sketchbook until the wind stops. Someone was passing out roses from the float during farmers market. The tomatoes are "lemon boy" tomatoes that I forgot about and found in the garden while cutting some mint for mojitos. I planted them last spring and they are still on the vine.
They are a beautiful orange color. I recommend them. This garden/farmers market talk may sound great to you colorado people, but I can't go skiing today. Please click on an image, and it will enlarge and you can read notes, see detail, etc., but you know that. Not that there's alot of detail. These are very quick sketches and I still don't like the paper quality of the sketchbook.
