Many of us follow blogs of other artists here on the internet that we have never met. Sometimes fate gives us a chance to meet one of them. Today was a special day. I have been following the blog of Wendy Barrett from Australia for quite a while, and she is on a trip to the USA and I met her in NYC today!!! She was so sweet and it was so much fun to spend time with her.
Here is a link to her blog: http://wendybarrettpainting.blogspot.com
I know some of you follow her blog too. We had such a good time together!!!
First we sketched in Times Square. Rain was forecast but we didn't let that dampen our enthusiasm for sketching and talking. Here we are in Times Square...where they saved a table in the pedestrian mall just for us. :)

We also saw some of the other works like Van Gogh's "Starry Night" which Wendy is admiring in this photo.
Wendy will be in NYC for 2 weeks and she will be joining me and the NYC Urban Sketchers in Central Park on Saturday (weather permitting). After several weeks of lovely weather we have been having rain and chilly weather all week. I hope Saturday is nicer.
Wendy took a few other photos of the two of us. With her permission I will post them when she sends them to me.
