This is David. He's an architect friend of mine that lives nearby. He's a smart guy. About 15 years ago when I moved to Maine I began looking for a group of architects and builders to discuss a manuscript I had been reading titled "The Nature of Order" that was written by Christopher Alexander, an architect and professor at the University of California in Berkeley. 

We formed a group that met a couple of times a month for several years and David always provided amazing insights and then took us on tangential discussions that were fascinating. I don't see him as much now and I miss that.

I sketched this in my Grand Portrait Handbook Journal with pencil and watercolor.
