Sunday Plein Airs

Yesterday my artist friend, Susan, and I took a ride over to the St. James General Store in St. James. The building, both inside and outside is such a throwback to the past. I took some photos inside of the jars and displays of candy and assorted treats. This was painted from the opposite side of the street and is 5 x 7.
Later we went to a performance by the Bay Arts Chorus at a church in Patchogue. The singers and the orchestra were wonderful. Susan and I sat up in the balcony so we could sketch. It made the concert pass so quickly. They were done singing before I was done sketching. lol My appologies to the members that I missed. This is 4 x 6.
