Paint Party Friday

Another delightful visit with my client. He's such a sweetie. We chatted, I told him some silly self-deprecating stories and he laughed at my follies. I told him how I still hadn't seen a Snowy owl. He spotted one in his backyard from his bed. I was so happy for him.
While we chatted he would doze suddenly, and I took out my sketchpad.
     "What are you going to draw?" he asked.
     "I don't know!" Taking out a magazine, I spotted a stuffed pink unicorn on the top of a Volkswagen, a gift of some sort. Also, a lovely landscape.
He wanted to see my drawing as I made progress, in between dozing off. Then he wondered where my traditional bird was, I threw in some seagulls!
He told me a joke. He said he teases his son, who is about my age, and he'll stare out the window and say, "If you want to see a deer..." then pauses... "this isn't the time!" By this point his son has run to the window and is disappointed!
It's not out of the question. One day, out in the backyard grazing on their gardens, were a herd of Scottish Highlander cows!

Art should be like a holiday: something to give a man the opportunity to see things differently and to change his point of view. 
             -Paul Klee, painter (1879-1940)

There was some mutual support going on here. You were being prompted in your drawing. You put some effort into keeping someone involved for a time.
