It's been a while since I've put out a drawing. I finished up a year of teaching, took a week vacation, and just finished my first week at a new job, working at a local university. This is the first time I've not been in a classroom in something like 25 years. The weather has been scorching hot, usually around 108 degrees, which makes our pool feel like bathwater and our grass feel like velcro. So, to get my mind on cooler things, I decided to draw a welcome sight on hot days in Italy- a gelato joint. How wonderful it sounds, even now.
