Coming home from Christmas travels. One more page to go in this year's last sketchbook. From the passenger seat of our car, I drew a sketch of trees reflected in standing water - the ground is frozen, even though the air is above freezing, so melted snow doesn't drain from low-lying fields. I drew a box around that little picture, thinking I would fill the page with boxed sketches and studies. Then I noticed a mile marker askew and drew that, but it ran off the page and didn't really seem to belong in a box. And then I wanted to get some of the colors of the Pennsylvania winter landscape onto the page, so I drew with ink and then water-soluble oil pastel and just filled the rest of the space with part of the view on Interstate 80, headed west towards Pittsburgh.
