I love this artist’s style, and also the story behind this sketch from Atherton, California, posted a few hours ago on Suhita Shirodkar’s Flickr site.

Sitting on a bench at the Rose Gardens, Filoli Estates, sketching. Unfinished piece. I was told it wasn’t allowed. Seriously? I am outdoors in a garden. I have a little sketchbook in my lap, am holding onto a small watercolor set that is about the size of an iphone. There are a zillion people all around with HUGE cameras and lenses taking pictures. That’s fine but sketching isn’t?
