A Two-Cement-Mixer Kind of Day

10/2/20 In front of Alice and Tom's house, Maple Leaf neighborhood

Another one!

Our friends and neighbors, Alice and Tom (who treat us to beautiful produce from their garden all summer), were repaving their driveway. I couldn’t make it the day the backhoe was digging up the old concrete, but you can bet I made sure I was there for the cement mixer a few days later. I know from previous attempts that cement mixers don’t stick around long, so it’s a bonus when I learn about sketch opportunities from friends.

Walking home, I took a different street, and I spotted another cement mixer! This one was attached to a huge pumper. I caught it in the nick of time: Just as I finished this quick sketch, the mixer left, and the pump folded up.

Two cement mixers in one day: How lucky can a sketcher get?


  1. You sure have a lot of construction going on in your sketching arena. I guess our year for that was last year. Pretty quiet around here right now. Maybe COVID restrictions are affecting construction too.

    1. I thought that COVID might slow some of the work down too, but so far, it doesn't seem like it has affected it one bit. Still ongoing everywhere!
