The Accordion Player

Despite his upbeat music, the young dude playing the accordion at Phinney Farmers Market seemed glum – actually, downright morose. When people dropped money into his box, he thanked them politely, but that didn’t seem to cheer him up much, either. When I showed him the sketch, though, he smiled broadly. Everyone likes being sketched.

(This was my third farmers market this week: I think that’s a personal best! I probably can’t keep up this pace all summer, but I can during strawberry season, which, sadly, will be ending soon.)
