Looks like garden umbrellas might be a theme in my summer-season sketch forays. I have taken to making little drawings on my half-hour breaks at work. (One half hour required per six-hour workday.) You saw the fountain in this luxury apartment courtyard some weeks ago. These are the chairs, tables and umbrellas on the patio where people sit outside and grill stuff and eat. It looks like a fancy hotel. There is a swimming pool in another part of this space. It's very well-taken-care of. While I was drawing this a maintenance man came by, saw the drawing, and voiced his appreciation. I wouldn't mind living here but it is much too expensive for me to afford.
