This afternoon was beautiful so my wife and I headed to downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan. She visited a museum. I took a lawn chair, the dog, my sketchbook, paints and spent the afternoon in the sun. This sketch catches some of the Grand Rapids skyline and the walking bridge that crosses the Grand River. The bridge connects downtown shopping and offices to hotels, museums, high-rise apartments, and the river-side park. The park's a great place to walk along the river or just sit and watch a guy fly his kite.
