Seen from the 12th St view point here on Beacon Hill.
Here's a link to pics of the plant...

Already late in the afternoon when I started...
Cold and dark when I finished.

I have two sketchbooks-- one is primarily reserved for drawing, the other is mostly for painting ideas, notes and such. The drawing sketchbook has better paper than the other, the note book has more pages.
I split into two books because I noticed that I rarely look at older books, and what's the point of making notes for painting ideas if you never look at them? The note taking book takes longer to finish than the drawing book, so I'll be carrying the ideas around longer, making it more likely that I'll get around to exploring some of ideas inside.
Like the drawing sketchbook, I use the notebook for "homework"-- in this case I've posted some notes I made on some Duane Keiser paintings he did this summer in Maine. I bought the painting in the second set of pages.

I painted this on Sunday, but I probably shouldn't have-- it was very cold and threatened rain the whole time. I was sick that weekend, and still sick now. Not the swine flu, but a definite crud. Blech.
