The Good Neighbour

Here's the Good Neighbour drawing, in part for M.B., but also I wanted to post something since it's been ages since my last one.

This image and the "Voulez-Vous Cafe" drawing were actually black lined quite a few weeks ago but I only finished colouring them yesterday. A slight burn out with the cafe drawings, but here they are. It's funny, but when I look at any drawing that I've invested some time in, I could remember exactly what was going around me when I drew it. With this one, there were two gentlemen sitting beside me talking about the nature of love. Actually it was the younger of the two men who was asking his friend what love was? Was he in love? I believe when they did leave, the younger man did think he was in love with his girlfriend. Isn't that sweet.

I'm going to have to check Bloglines, I seem to have missed a couple of your posts. This is just amazing (I hope you like it!) a gorgeous combination of plain and pattern! I love the colours too especially outside the window. The chair in the foreground gives it an unconventional composition. I guess I'm trying to say I like it! ;)

Never in my life have I overheard any conversation even remotely similar to the one you describe. Is it a Canada thing? I can barely imagine two men in a public place having such a conversation here. Anyway, I love - and I mean love - the way you colored this drawing, especially the background.

Felicity-- thanks. To be honest, I'm not a big fan of this one. How do you perceive these feelings I have towards my drawings. Are you a mind reader?!!! ;)

Dan-- not to sure if it's a Canadian thing. Maybe it's a guy thing you find in an artsy coffee house. Dunno, but it made for some interesting insights about love in general from the gents next door.
