Daily Drawing 449 "Quincy Center" ink & watercolor

Some time in a coffee shop while drawing, with my daughter while she knit... that was our big plan for today, the day after Christmas, Boxing Day.  We set out, explored a few neighborhoods, and wound up at Gunther Tooties Bagel and Coffee shop in Quincy center.  We frequent one of their shops in our neighborhood; food is fresh, made with care in a pleasant environment. We took some stools by the window where I could see the traffic through the newly-arranged square, and we hung out.  There was a fascinating conversation at a a nearby table, on which, by the way, we did not eavesdrop, they were loud.  We would have had to leave... was it a breakup?  Was it an analysis of a first or second date?  Was it verbal sparring for the un-fun of it?  At one point, he said, "why did we need to come out for food to have this conversation?"  By the way, she ordered the chicken noodle soup, while he asked for ice water... part of the fun of hanging out in a coffee shop.  They left abruptly, got into the same car, though about 2 minutes apart, and drove off together.  Who knows?  Could be the start of a very interesting story, and I hope the right thing happens for the two of them, whatever that is. This is my four hundred forty-ninth daily drawing.  Thank you for your continued interest in my daily efforts.

November Daily Drawings - a handful

Here are a number of may daily drawings from the month of November.  It's been an interesting month, few sunny days, but I found some chances to be out in the sun when it did show.  And, I did a couple of drawings from favorite old movies, "All About Eve" and "Charade".  I didn't see "All About Eve" until I was an adult, and hadn't seen many Bette Davis movies aside from "Whatever Happend to Baby Jane?" which was super scary.  Come to think of it, I also saw the Bette Davis movie "The Nanny", so well-written and suspenseful.  Imagine a 10-yr-od boy barricaded in his room while his Nanny tries to kill him... an lots of other suspense building within the apartment prior to her going for him.  Terrifying.  Add "Rear Window" to my list and what were my parents thinking?  Who was watching my television consumption?  I am up to my 424th daily drawing.  Thank you for continuing to see my posts?
