Usually I can spot abandoned couches during the last or first few days of the month when tenants are moving out. Right on cue, this one was left out on a street corner on Feb. 1, but by the time I saw it, the light was fading. The broken, cushionless chair was still there yesterday, so I dashed off a quick sketch. Despite the chill, the sun made a welcome appearance on Ground Hog’s Day, so I suppose I could have gone looking for more attractive subject matter. But at this time of year on the rare days when I can go outdoors to sketch at all, I’m not very picky.
