For day 18 of "30 Paintings in 30 Days" I used a photo of a hibiscus that I had taken in someone's garden. They always remind me of my sister, Fran, who had them growing in her yard. This is 5 x 5 inches.
The other evening my sketch group met at the Nook Cafe and Pizzaria in West Sayville. It is a new, very friendly place to have a snack or coffee. They loved the idea of having us sketch there. I'm sure we will be heading back.
