Vacation sketching

I envy the nature of children. Four strangers on a tire swing, one mission...to go higher. No awkward introductions, no discussion of terms, no fear of being hurt. Simple business...get on, push and pull together, enjoy the ride.
Perfect Strangers from my watercolor sketchbook.

We'd unite so much better if we as adults lived the same way. Imagine.

Lovely colours.
