"21 Of 23..."

...Windows in our house
are being replaced due to "blown" seals...it gets really hot here...
and the process began yesterday.
The bad part...
is that one large window cracked while being taken out
so the shutter company has to come back
and
remove all interior shutters on the bigger windows.
The good part...
is that all windows are covered under warranty...Whew!...
and...since my sketchbook was right there handy
I was able to capture part of the day!
BTW...don't you think
our service person had a remarkable similarity to
Kid Rock??? Hat and all...Seriously! :)
One never knows just who will pop on our everyday lives!

“Art is the window to man's soul.
Without it,
he would never be able to see beyond his immediate world;
or could the world see the man within.”

He definitely looks like Kidd. It is amazing how those glass handlers can make those suction cup thingies work. Facinating to watch.

Who knew Kidd Rock moonlights just to have a chance to be immortalized by the great Peg!
I can't believe you can make such work on your house so intriguing on paper! Lisa

Yes he does! Love the picture and well done for drawing the guy quick enough! Better than I'd manage. I had double glazing put in and it's kind of weird isn't it? The house just feels strange with big holes in the side...

Wonderful sketch!! We went through new windows being put in about four years ago, the double paned one and it makes a huge difference, especially in the heavy santa ana winds.

and lucky me, my son and husband put them in, so other than price of windows, we had no labor costs. I have tons of windows!!

I love your art, as always.
