The Flag

This flag was majestically flying near a diner.. It was, but, torn on the top stripe.. and it looked like the storm was being harsh on it.. I drove by it to drop Tanush at his school, but on my way back, the flag against all those nasty gray growling clouds seemed to be asking for a picture! It made me park opposite and capture it in my sketchbook...

A lousy plein air sketch - I had only 5 watercolor pencils.. No amount of touch ups with a bit of watercolor could rescue it...

BTW, they still haven't changed that flag :(
