Walking with my dust mop, ink & colored pencil

Walking with my dust mop, ink & colored pencil

I needed a new dust mop, a tube of silicon adhesive and some exercise, so I put them together and walked to Pastime Hardware, a large family-owned hardware store that has everything, including  their famously helpful employees.

The sketch above actually closely resembles me when I’m out walking, with my green backpack  that is so comfy, even when loaded with junk, my nifty purple cap, and old green shorts.

On the way to the store I called my mom on my iPhone, getting that task done as well. As she told me tales of her adventures with her new, and first computer, I stopped to draw some cacti I spotted along the way.

My last stop was at the video store to pick up a copy of Local Color which never came out in theaters in Northern California and is finally available on DVD. Then I walked home with the mop over my shoulder feeling like I should be whistling a little tune.

  3. Great sketches! Tell me about a backpack that is comfortable, even when full! What brand is it?

    • Hi Carol, It’s a Kelty Redtail. I got it at REI. What makes it so comfortable is that it’s built for a woman’s narrower shoulders and it has good padding and a chest and waist strap that get the load off the shoulders. It’s OK without using the other two straps but they make a big difference. I’m willing to look dorky in exchange for comfort! Jana

    • I’m not quite done watching it, but it’s a pretty movie with some inspiring art and art teaching stuff in it, but also sappy, stereotyped, and corny. But still worth renting. Jana
