Alive After 5 - Part II

The Patchogue Sketch Club had a table set up at the Alive After 5 street fair. I did a few sketches sitting with my friends by the table. There were a few interesting food trucks parked across from us and they had a bit of traffic which made them fun to sketch. Imagine a hot dog vendor with the name "Old Dirty Dogs." lol That must tell you something.

Right next to us on the grass was a vendor with all these hula-hoops. I assume they were selling them but mostly there were people just trying them out. One little girl near us was doing a great job with two of them.

The group will return to sketch there on the two nights it is open in August, so I will try to get there and sketch again.


  1. Looks like you had a fabulous time. Street fairs epitomize summer and I love how you have done these sketches, Joan. You've captured summer fun in paint!

  2. Sounds like fun! These are wonderful sketches.

  3. It looks like a fun time, dirty dogs and all! Your sketches tell us the story beautifully!

  4. I'm mesmerized by your sketches. What a story they tell!

  5. Thanks, Sherry. There is always such life and fun at those festivals.

    Carol, thanks so much.

    Celia, thanks!

    Jo, glad you enjoy them.
