I have spent the past three weeks visiting my family south of San Francisco. My parents have been married for 61years and have lived in the same California ranch house for 56. My 86 year old dad isn't doing so well so we are all gathering around to help the patriarch. It clearly takes a village so sketching has taken a backseat to the caring for my dad.

The other night, while he held my hand, I did a quick sketch on pre-painted paper and finished it after he had gone to sleep. We take it one day at a time...

Happy New Year everyone.
