Waiting for Botticelli

For all who don't know: There is pretty rare exhibition of Botticelli paintings and graphics in Frankfurt am Main in the 
Städel Museum. They gathered a lot of his stuff from different museums and privat collectors from all around the world. If you like Botticelli's art you should go there. (Check out the rest of the museum as well. They have some nice paintings there with a wide range from gerhard Richter to Picasso and Rembrandt.) But be warned, you might have to wait between 30 to 60 minutes due to a lot of people wanting to see it. (Btw, the famous 'Birth of Venus' cannot be seen there: It is still at the Uffizi gallery in Italy. )

So I made this little sad sketch while standing in the line and waiting for entry. I should mention that it was very cold on that day and I can't remember my fingers hurting that much ever. This and standing while drawing didn't make it easy to come up with straight line. :)
