A moment presented itself in my hectic schedule in which to sketch. I knew it was coming, too, so I packed my stuff up and toted our oldest son along to the auto shop. Nothing major, just having some fluids changed, so I knew I’d have an hour or so to kill. I only spent a few minutes sketching, however, because some dude walked in and turned the dang TV on in the waiting room. Well, it wasn’t because he turned it on. It was because of what he decided to watch… Tombstone! That is my all-time favorite movie! I can quote the dialogue along side the actors, almost verbatim. It’s sad, I know. Needless to say I watched more than I sketched. Because my dad and I both loved this movie, and knew everything there is to know about the cast of characters, my dad made me promise to name my first son Wyatt. Dad passed away before I could have a son, but I honored the promise. Wyatt James Ayers.
At the end of the visit, this is what I had – after a dude out of a Time magazine laying on the coffee table.
When I got home I spent five minutes (literally) to throw on some watercolor.
I hope I can have some more moments to doodle again sometime. I do love it so.
