After a tiring day of helping Joan put up Halloween decorations and recovering (still) from my thrown-out back, I started to sketch another Buddha — coming down to the home stretch on that series — when I turned around and saw the entire family reading quietly in our bed. The Buddha picture wasn’t coming out that well, and this looked more interesting anyway, so I started on the right side, making my way over left. Unfortunately the youngest one nodded off before I got to her. The girl’s are reading novels and the boy is reading a comic book.
