This is the same traffic circle I sketched from previously at about the same time of day; this time I faced east. That blue strip you see toward the center is the Chevron station where I last filled my tank in February (it’s still half full). Just above it is the cross atop St. Catherine of Siena Parish, which I sketched years ago.
Overhead somewhere, a junco called repeatedly with its nonmelodic, high-pitched machine gun. The temperature was ideal for sketching in the sun. It felt so good that I could almost forget . . .
