Here in NY we are having a heat wave. It has been in the low to mid 90s for the past few days...not conducive to sitting outside and sketching. I had a meeting this morning and was planning to go to the pool and sit in the shade to keep cool in the afternoon, but I wanted to sketch something. There is a Starbucks nearby in Patchogue near where my meeting took place where it is possible to back into a space and sit in your car with a view of the store. There is no parking in front of it so you can get a good view. I kept the car running and the AC on while I sketched and painted this because it was just too hot. It was nice to be able to use my Lamy pen again.
