Did She or Didn't She Sketch in NYC?
A very happy Monday to you.
I love Monday after a very full weekend. It is an open ended gift.
I hope your day and week ahead are just what you need for your own growth, contentment and happiness.
We had two enormous rain falls this weekend. The parched ground is sloshy-soggy with water, the birds are flitting everywhere, the bird-feeders sticky with mushy seeds and my once sad drooping sunflowers...(even though just a few)...some are lifting their heads as proud survivors of our high temps!
To get off to a good day, I thought I would go back to last week's question: did Sharon with the Big Mama camera chafing her neck, soles sticking to the NYC cement walks, manage to sketch, even a wee bit.
Our first morning in NYC we wanted to walk to Rockefeller Center, but we were starving and on the prowl for breakfast, when this cute sign and all the bikes caught my eye:
We quickly crossed the street jaywalking style, while attempting to take a picture on the run.
Toasties don't you love the name!
It turned out to be a New York style deli. Deli's are always great food experiences, and love the people who frequent them.
Of course we were looking for breakfast and I settled on
this amazing CORN (as in kernals) and BLUEBERRY muffin accompanied by Hot Chocolate.
Are you out of your mind, hot chocolate during this stifling heat?
We went to a back corner of the nearly empty deli, and pulled out our sketchbooks.
A double spread in Moleskin notebook.
Yes, indeed managed to start a sketch of a very delicious muffin, did drink the hot chocolate, but as one can see the rest of the day
the search for 'drinkables' was on.
More NYC sketches to come.
Have a terrific, smile-producing Monday.
