This illustration was created for They-Draw, (a creative playground for illustration that features the work of amazing artists, illustrators, doodlers, and drawers from around the world). While the local wineries were closed due to the pandemic, my friend Susie and I made do by setting up in my front yard where the view is incredible and the laughs are many. My happy place and such a happy time sharing local soft-shell sandwiches, steamed shrimp, spinach & artichoke dip, cheeses and cherries.
