At Lake City Farmers Market, it’s often easier to sketch the back side of one row of the vendors’ booths rather than the front: It’s shady back there, and I can sit on the library steps. The back of one booth, Jikoni Kenyan Kitchen, gave me a peek at several busy young women stirring large kettles. I didn’t eat anything there, but the delicious scents emanating from the kitchen were hard to resist!
Before filling my bag with local cherries and strawberries, I stopped to sketch Brad and Valerie playing the accordion and fiddle as they sang country tunes.
It was 72 degrees with not a cloud in the sky. In June (we usually don’t get weather like this until July)! Does it get any better than this? And if it does, who needs it!
