Sketching with a friend

Live Oak Planted
5.5" x 8.5"
Another sketch from a nearby park at the edge of a cricket field.  Yes, Englewood has a cricket field.  Drove by last weekend and players were dressed in white, swinging bats.  Will have to do some paintings of them soon.  Beautiful sight.  But the morning of this sketch the park was empty.  My friend and I sat in the shade and did more chatting and laughing than work, but it was all fun and worthwhile.  A car drove up and two young men got out and sat nearby, blasting their radio... I guess in hopes of driving us away.  We didn't budge and they finally gave up and left.  But still it was a little creepy.  My friend had a personal protection device, similar to an electric cattle prod in her purse, just in case.  Too bad we have to think about these things.
