98 Prince Street

It was warm until late in the evening on Monday, so I sat out on the back porch and sketched the back of our neighbour’s house.

The spiral fire escape staircase was a challenge that I solved mostly through smudgy abstraction; I’m proud of the trees though, and of the darkened-windows.

It’s a fascinating house, filled with hithers and yons; since they purchased it some years ago, Angus and Karen have, bit by bit, been coaxing out its details and returning it to form.

So, a good house to be neighbours with on many fronts.

Looking at the sketch in the fresh light of day, I realize that I’ve drawn the fire escape as though it connects to nothing at the very top. It does.
