Thursday evenings The Indigo Girls have been doing live concerts on their Facebook page to benefit various causes. Last night they were having technical difficulties and their video kept freezing (although the sound was okay!), so I had a chance to do a quick sketch of Emily and Amy together. They're actually a little further apart in real life, but I had limited space left on my journal page for the day. You can also get a bit of a glimpse here of the kind of stuff that's been ending up in my journal these days - sketches, notes, lists, journaling.

"Once there was a way
to get back home."
This isn't much more than a doodle, really, but it's... Proof that I've created something. Made in a stolen hour. There's Beatles lyrics hidden through and underneath - exactly what was needed in that moment.
I didn't mean for it to end up looking like a murmuration, but that's what it did, and I'm happy with that.
Done in my 3.5 x 5.5" Hand-Book Travelogue journal with Winsor & Newton Indigo watercolor and pencil.
