Here is a panorama of the corner of 6th and G Streets, Davis. You can click on it for a closer look. It’s mostly trees and a couple of buildings, the usual. Couple of roads, the odd mis-shapen car. I only sketch in three chords, plus maybe a minor chord, you know what you’re getting. I should draw streets in musical order, so that they make a song. Start with C Street, then F Street, back to C, maybe up to the corner of G and 7th, you get the idea. I sketched it on the last day of March when I was home alone for the weekend while the family was in Oregon. It was one where I decided on just a few colours, mostly because I was tired. I still love sketching panoramas. There’s the Davis Co-Op on the other side of the street.

Would an alley off G street by G minor?
Yes, I think that would work. See I was trying to think of what would count as a minor chord: a childlike drawing? An old Morris Minor parked on the street (don’t get those here)? The inclusion of a man with a pickaxe and a dirty face? I think the alley may be my best bet.
Well I admit I went for the low-hanging fruit. I baulked at the augmented and diminished fairly quickly…
