On Saturday which was "Small Business Saturday" I headed over to the shops in Bellport for a bit of shopping as well as sketching. It was on the cold side so I sat in my car to do this first sketch of one of the stores called, It's Only Natural.
When I got out of my car I noticed that across the street the Bellport Chamber of Commerce was having a soup tasting contest featuring 7 soups from the local restaurants. How could I pass that up? At the tasting table I met a few of my friends who were there doing the same thing. I did taste all 7 soups and liked the chicken corn chowder the best...and it turned out to be the winner after all the votes were counted. I'll have to stop at Avino's Italian Table and have a bowl of it some day. When I was done tasting I figured I had to sketch the event too, so I headed across the street to sit a bit away from the booth so I could get it all in. The Bellport Chamber of Commerce liked it enough to repost it on their FB page.
