Urban Doodles & Kayaking
Jocelyn and I on the Potomac River
Yesterday was Mother's Day and I was fortunate enough to be able to go kayaking with my daughter, Jocelyn. We quickly packed up and headed to launch the kayaks in nearby Algonkian Park. Jocelyn received her kayak as a birthday gift last month and her birthday wish was that I doodle a 'tattoo' on the side of it to make it even more special. I just love when my children like my work.
Here is a close-up of the results. She loves it which is the best. In fact, while launching the boats and preparing to take a quick photo for the blog, we met two lovely young girls, one of which asked if she could help with the photos. She turned out to be quite the photographer and snapped five photos before we even had a chance to worry about how we looked. Anyway I finally got it across to her that I was actually there to take a photo of the tattoo. She stopped and then came closer to look, immediately asking me for a card so that she too could have her kayak tattooed. You never know who you are going to meet. Stay tuned another business might be on the horizon.
