Personal journal piece of a drink at W&P.

A full day of smashing out art with a midday lunch break of driving a new muddy road I discovered.
Upon completing my assignment this evening (Southern Living magazine) I decided against cutting the grass and went to my little pizza pub (Wig & Pen) for a drink.

Felt like drawing tonight and took my own advice; just draw what's in front of you when it occurs to you to draw and make a journal remark about the day. Don't try to illustrate the day, just draw what you're looking at and write whatever comes to mind.
