Ink From My Sketchbook

 
 
 NOTE TO THE WONDERFUL PEOPLE I HAVE SKETCHED IN PUBLIC SPACES:
I realize that it might strike some of you as surprising--perhaps alarming--that I was sketching you while you were unaware. That I was sketching you might be alarming because sketching a person requires looking at them, staring at them even; so, I admit that I was staring at you.  But I want to set your mind at ease.  Throughout our days we encounter many people; some people we stare at, but we never sketch them.  That is a shame!  People are beautiful and I am so thankful that I can sketch a tremendous human from time to time.  I chose to sketch you specifically because I think that you are a beautiful person, and I hope that you only take my action as a sincere compliment. 
 
Here is my dilemma: Do I give the sketch to you when I am done or do I post it on my website?  Give or post?  Give or post?  It is better to give than to post.  So to you who are visiting my site right now because I gave you a sketch: Your sketch is sadly not posted on my site, but happily, you are the owner of the original drawing.
