I did this drawing on the bus today in East Oakland. The woman was so peaceful as she read her book. Her hair reminded me of an apple eating, prudent librarian reading on an orange/purpleish sky afternoon. Peaceful, simple, collected. She probably has lots of grand babies and takes care of her disabled brother. She wore a beautiful earth toned scarf with an olive green skirt and teachers assistant ran nurse shoes.
I bet she has apple juice in her icebox and graham crackers in the cubbard with a wind chime in the window over the kitchen sink.
