October 25th: It was raining so I looked for an indoor location to paint. I ended up on the third floor of Bascom and started to draw. I was working right next to the window with a view of the hill and Abe Lincoln's backside. Suddenly a group of workers came up and I realized I was in their way. One approached me and I asked me if I remembered him. I knew him right away! He is the father of two of my students. I scooted back and came up with a better composition (including two of the workmen). Omar and Sammy's dad is on the left.
