A sketch has charm because of its truth - not because it is unfinished.
-Charles Hawthorne (American artist of the early 20th century)

I spent a lovely day off at the Garfield Park Conservatory in Chicago. Warm, humid green oxygen soaked air to breath as an antidote to February in Illinois. The longest short month of the year is how it feels around here.
My sketch of palms, ferns, and a marble statue somewhat hidden in the verdant abundance.
