Like so many of you I have been following the news reports of the destruction and effects of Hurricane Irma. Although it has lessened in intensity it has affected and will continue to affect so many people. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of those affected.

Every time I have been to the Hicksville LIRR Station lately there have been workmen busily working on renovations. Usually I am taking the train form there and don't have time to stop and sketch. Yesterday we were there for another reason and were early, so my friend and I went up to the platform, plunked down our chairs and did a sketch of some of the workmen. They are putting a roof over the platform which will come in handy in wet weather.


  1. I enjoy sketching construction workers, too, because they are always dressed in neon orange and yellow!
