Two Women Eating Lunch "Close to Home" Lynn Cohen

For the first theme, "Close to Home":
To kick off our blog I am adding a drawing I did last month in a local restaurant while eating lunch. It's a habit I've adapted over the past 3 years, drawing in public. In the next two weeks I will draw more "Close to Home" pictures, that might be done inside my house, in my backyard, down the street, downtown anywhere I find myself in my local environs. And I hope YOU will choose to do the same in your neighborhoods. I look forward to your creative posts here.

  4. Love the way you drew that lady's outfit! It would be fun to have lunch with you at Taco Jalisco. We could sketch each other while we waited for our food.
