6/17/05- When it gets so busy at the office, I often take time to stop at the local Starbuck's during my lunch to sketch, relax and unwind. This particular Starbuck's seating is set up rather oddly so it is hard to sketch people from a frontal view without their knowledge. Last Friday, a gentleman was sitting across my left shoulder just 4 feet away and didn't have a clue that I was sketching him. He was dressed in business attire; a starched crisp blue shirt with white collar and cuffs with the most incredible cuff links (which I did not draw-but wished I could ask him about) and navy dress pants with black polished loafers. His head was shaven smooth and gleamed in the overhead lighting, which I would have loved to have spent time capturing but did not have the luxury of time on my side. Another patron walked by and commented, "bless you,such a talented artist", and the gentleman I was sketching never looked up so I was safe.
