Mustn't miss a day you know, even if I have to wedge August 10th's entry into a small piece of time before I have to tend to August 11. These sketches are from a delightful idyllic summer afternoon drinking wine and eating snacks at Rogers Ford Farm Winery, which is located in central Virginia in a place appropriately called "Sumerduck." Their farm has all sorts of weathered old little buildings scattered around, each one of which is worth a drawing. They also have modern barns, the winery buildings, and a beautifully restored old house which is used as the tasting room. You can sit out on their porch and drink wine and have conversations with the other guests. It is just the best.
