Winter Drawing / by Karen Matheis

A cozy hat and sweater are keeping me warm.

Cold January days have kept us inside, so we decided to take our sketchbooks and head to the Nelson Atkins Museum yesterday.  We brought our small sketchbooks, and drew people around us as we drank coffee.  We also made quick sketches of sculptures in the Chinese temple.  We went to the modern section and examined the Diebenkorn.  

This morning, I am in my studio painting.  As usual, my cat is in her favorite chair lazily watching me paint.
