Day 103
I wandered around the suburb looking for something to draw. I stopped to look at a large collection of blue garden urns and then noticed someone in the house - a sprightly old lady dancing all by herself. After a while she saw me watching and fell about laughing. I smiled and waved. 6 km

How funny! I'll bet she was utterly embarrassed, poor lady. Thank you for sharing, and illustrating, this story. Gave me a chuckle, anyway.

How wonderful, I love seeing people "play". You did a great job with the swirly lines to show her dancing and I really like her clothes they give a very good sense of her age.

Lovely! Thee's a saying something like 'dance as though no-one is watching'. That's the way to live, but sometimes we are even too shy to do that.
I like your focus on particular things you observe, rather than try and draw the whole horizon.

This was wonderful! What a cool lady. I love it when people leave their curtains open and I can see in their homes. I like to imagine what their lives are like, what it feels like to be them. How fun that she was enjoying dancing by herself!
