I was in Washington earlier this month and did a few drawings while visiting some of the Smithsonian museums. I was reminded that I had my Palm Zire during my first visit to our nation’s capital and sure enough the oldest drawing on my PDA is of the Washington Monument. That was ten years ago. A number of years passed before I started drawing on the PDA regularly but I still have that doodle of the Washington Monument.

While I was at the Hirshorn Museum drawing this one figure from a larger group of figures a couple were posing with it for some pictures. Their posing included hugging it around the neck and holding its hand. I think they knew touching wasn’t permitted but there’s something irresistible about mugging with a figurative sculpture. It’s because the only penalty for getting caught is a short moment of embarrassment.
