1 drawing on paper : col. pencil ; image 5.5 x 6.625 in, on sheet 11 x 8.5 in.

Pencil drawing of a bearded man seated on the ground with eyes closed holding a fishing pole at water's edge within a blue rectangular line border. He is dressed in a hat, formless shirt, and pants, hands resting on knees bent at chest and feet on a stone. A large dog is curled at his side, right, sleeping with head on front paws. Water courses around the bend on left, where a cat hooks the end of the sleeping fisherman's line and pulls the small catch toward him. Trees and grass in background.
