Even the eight foot Lincoln statue in the South Park blocks has dawned a winter scarf. It's just a matter of time till some big winds come in and strip the fall colors down to bare trunks. A change of season is good or how would we ever appreciate the return of spring green and summer sky blue? And with that, I've had a cold and fever since Monday and feel like crap. I'm getting a little house bound so will plan on meeting the Portland Urban Sketchers today for a couple hours in Hollywood district. Just to prove I have done something this week, here's a sketch book page from the weekend. While you're out today buy a box of tissues and cough drops.
