Harts Cove Bait & Tackle

I was out in East Moriches recently and passed this quirky bait and tackle shop....so of course I pulled over to sketch it. I loved all the things hanging on the building and piled next to it. I was painting from my car across the street in the only spot that had a really good view. The spot happened to be right next to someone's mailbox, so I was on the watch for a postal truck to come along to make a delivery. Luckily I didn't have to move for one.

  2. You have got me looking around all over for parking places at things I want to try to sketch. There is an old redone train station that I want to try to complete but haven't found a good parking spot yet. Does that sound like an excuse?

    1. LOL I have that problem with a lot of places I see...just no place to park. Some places I've gone back to several times for that reason.

  3. What a super little building! You did such a nice job of this - all the way to the cute little welcome sign. I have no interest in painting on site like you and Nelvia but I am thinking about driving around and taking photos to paint from - that is my speed. Thanks for sharing Joan.
