SKETCHES OF SAN DIEGO
23 years. On and off.
That's how long I've been in S.D.
It's changed in some ways,
it's remained the same in others.
This series of sketches are what I think makes San Diego special in all its shadows and shades.
The city's gone through stages.
It started out as a desert land, the landscape punctuated by rolling hills, natural valleys, dry greens and browns.
It still feels like a dream to me. The trees, the people, the ocean breeze.
Something both preserved and lost to time. The feeling of late February.
Its historic architecture, museums (now closed), the organ pavilion, and lotus pond- they are all the perfect backdrop to people gazing on a sunny day.
We sit on a tarp and blanket, use wood boxes as decks, and type and draw away under the sun.
