Beach Dune

Here is another dune sketch I did at Robert Moses State Park the other day. Every spot looks different and the foliage is so interesting.

Here are a few EDM sketches.

Dune Vegetation

I was over on Fire Island the other day to drop off something at the lighthouse, and I stopped for a few minutes to paint some of the dune vegetation.

Airport Sketch

The other day I went to Kennedy International Airport to pick up my husband. I brought along my sketchbook which made the wait more enjoyable. I love all the characters waiting for people.

My plein air group, PALS, had our first outing of the season on Tuesday at the Bayard Cutting Arboretum in Oakdale. The lilacs were in bloom...and they smelled heavenly. They are definitely not easy to paint...sort of like painting hydrangeas. Too many tiny blossoms.

Locust Avenue Farm

As I said in yesterday's post. I didn't end up buying flowers at the Bloomin' House when I was there. It was just raining too hard to make it comfortable to walk around from greenhouse to greenhouse. I ended up at the Locust Avenue Farm in Bohemia the next day. When I parked I had a pretty good view, so I sat in the car to sketch this. It was super windy out anyway...and too cold. We are having a very strange spring.

Outside the Bloomin' House

The other day I really wanted to paint something and buy flowers for my patio. I headed to one of the local nurseries, called the Bloomin' House in Holtville. Of course I got there and it started to drizzle. I couldn't get a parking spot facing the flower displays so I sketched the view looking out of the parking lot while I sat in the car.

Pink Tree & EDM Sketches

The pink trees have been changing into their spring greens. I will miss all that wonderful color.

Here are a few of my recent sketches for Every Day in May.

Here's my suitcase that I was packing for my trip to the graduation.

This sandwich is one that I wish I had right now...a meatball sub.

Jewelry was the prompt so I sketched one of my earrings made from some kind of nut found in the Amazon.

Last night I had to do cutlery.
