This deck is such a sanctuary. This is where my early riser hangs out every morning while I'm still sleeping. There are a million great views with every fractional turn of the head, but this is what I see when I sit in the comfiest chair. Most mornings it is a sheet of glass with the view repeating itself perfectly in the lake. This morning is a little cloudy with a steady ripple, but it's nice enough for us.
I used my own advice (it's in my book) and drew the thing that can move first. While I was doing the rest of the drawing, Yogi was in about 15 different positions.
"Lie down like you were, or you'll end up as a line drawing".
"I think I would like to be a lion" he replied.
"No, not a lion, a line. Line drawing.".
