Yesterday was a sunny, windless, perfection of a day. I walked into the studio, turned on the lights and got ready to go. I prepared my paper, picked up a pencil, the lights went out. A neighbor's tree, for an unknown reason, fell and snapped the power line. In three hours I was back in the studio, but this is all I got. It is a good drawing. As usual this drawing is better in person than reproduction. I am always surprised on the large degree of dependency I have on the comforts of civilization. Without electricity I cannot paint.
