Sketching While Trapped - Carolyn A. Pappas

The other day (Tuesday) I went out to the mall to do some after Christmas shopping with my mother. The mall was very busy, so much so that we were stopped in traffic for over one hour just waiting to leave. My mother (and a number of other people) actually called 911 to have the police come and direct traffic because some people were starting to get major road rage. Luckily I had my sketchbook with me and some pens, so I could at least do some sketching. I think it stopped me from having a full-on panic attack. I also love drawing trees in winter because you can really see their "bones" easily.


  1. Im glad someone else enjoys traffic jams. Love the trees as well

  2. Carolyn, I am SO glad you had your journal and sketch tools!
