Summer break for the kids began about a month ago. My June consisted of errands and appointments and it shows in my sketchbook.
But the first day of summer break is always a no-errand day. I take the day off from work too and the kids and I go someplace close to home. This year we went tide-pooling near Half Moon Bay. I love the colors and textures by the sea.
Later in the month we had optometrist appointments. When I was a kid I had rectangular black frames with heavy lenses made of glass. So it always feels like a miracle that the lenses can now be made lightweight and thin and I can pick frames in any color. I pick cobalt blue. My daughter picks moss green.
Another long-overdue bit on our list? Haircuts. Our first one in 1.5 years! (not counting the DIY-trims we’ve given ourselves). I draw while Kavya asks for her hair to get cut a foot shorter than it started out.
More sketches from the summer coming soon.
