Drawing is important to me, never more so than when my schedule does not permit painting. A series of weekend trips, house projects, and computer-based projects, limited my painting time this fall. To encourage the habit of daily drawing, I joined an enthusiastic hike and sketch group at the Audubon Habitat sanctuary in Belmont, Mass. We gathered together one morning a week for four weeks. This was a wonderful opportunity to meet fellow artists who have similar desires to march through the fall woods, notice and celebrate the rapidly changing season by slowing down, with pen and paper in hand.
