My fitness-walking sketches from the past couple of months distinctly show the changing seasons – yet not changing enough. On Feb. 22, I went out walking in wet snow flurries. Some days in March were so cold that I had to duck into PCC for coffee or shop at Bartell just to warm up. On April 15, I sketched a late-blooming cherry tree, yet I didn’t want to spend more than 10 minutes because the harsh wind made the morning feel much colder than 48 degrees.
The trees and flowers seem to say, “Spring at last,” but I’m still saying, “Will spring ever arrive?”

be sure I caught him quickly. Then when I saw
that I had more time, I drew the whole
truck (at right).
