A drawing from our second visit to Portugal



We were still in Lisbon, and it was during the World Cup and there was yet another football (soccer) match on somewhere, and as the Portuguese are all football MAD the country kind of closed down while their own team was playing, but there were a few people who were otherwise preoccupied, like myself and these two other ladies, whose men were engrossed - ENGROSSED - in the action on the television, as was MY other half, and me, I was just drawing.

The up side of all the football: nobody played me the blindest bit of notice, they were GLUED to the television screens. Except for these two ladies. And me.

So I drew them.

And later I painted it up, let it dry, photographed it and put it away, and promptly forgot about it until I was looking for something else in my vast files of images of my drawings and paintings. A nice little surprise .... I wonder if that lady's kid is into football. He'd be about 6 years old now.
