crabapple - early spring

We could not have asked for a more beautiful Easter day in Rochester. We went to our friends Katie and Mike's house and I sat outside and drew while their son Padraig played with a wind-up bird.
In the top left-hand corner you can see where I was testing out the effects of water on my new felt-tip pens.
I loved the twistiness of this tree, and the things Katie had hung from its branches, still very bare at this time of year. Padraig claims this tree doesn't bloom, but I'm not so sure?

It was a beautiful Easter day. Ansel and I went walking in the sunshine, down by the river, and stopped to sit outside the library so I could draw the view.

morning doodles

Some of my favorite moments are when Ansel and I are lingering over morning coffee, maybe listening to the radio, tossing ideas back and forth, doodling.

We were talking about how March was generally a hard month (in Rochester, weather-wise, it's not really winter anymore but not quite yet spring) and Ansel mentioned that Julius Caesar might agree...
