Another pencil drawing in my book is done, abstracted geometric shapes create a flat plane in the somber background. Walking around the northern canals recently I discovered jetties of tall ships, tiny row boats and the occasional pile of maritime detritus.
I’ve been spending a bit of time in the kitchen lately cooking pasta bakes, roasted vegetables and tiny batches of cookies.
