I was in Cameroon this week to do a school consultation visit at Rain Forest Academy. It was a very busy time - but between visiting the school, interviews, observations, and report writing I made a bit of time to "unstring the bow" and make a few sketches. The sketch below is the courtyard of the guesthouse where I stayed.
A 7 year old Cameroonian/American boy, McKenvoy, sat beside me in the airport waiting area and pulled out his spiral bound sketchbook and started to draw pictures. I said, "Hey, that's a good idea" and then I got out my sketchbook and then the two of us sketched while waiting for our flight to Brussels. What a great way to pass the 2 hour wait we had between 11:00pm and 1:00am waiting to board.
McKenvoy if you're out there - it was nice to meet you. I wish I had a photo of the two of us sketching.
The flight from Bussels to DC was a long one. What better way to pass the time than sketching. How many of you have sat in seat 20B? I was tempted to title this "so close, yet so far away" to refer to the Business Class seats just three rows ahead of me. Oh how I wished I could have had the extra room to lay back and rest.
