Long Island City

On Saturday when we were going to the Museum of the Moving Image (see below) Susan and I left early to do a sketch in the area. The museum is on the border of Astoria and Long Island City. There is a spot that we pass in LIC on the way to the Queensboro Bridge that Susan always says, "We should sketch this view some day." LIC is a mostly industrial area and being a Saturday we were able to park fairly easily. This is about 5 x 8.


  1. Such a complex scene in such a small sketch, you have wonderful skills Joan, wishing you all the best for 2014

  2. What a great job you did on all those cars!! And too, I found myself marveling at the trees in front of the skywalk...With that orange behind them they look just as I imagine they would. A wonderful piece, Joan!!

  3. Wonderful sketch Joan! love all the details that you put into it..

  4. Joan - I am always in awe at how you capture a scene so quickly and help me see it through your eyes. Hope friend you have a beautiful New Year. I will be looking forward to see more of your lovely sketches.

  5. Thanks so much, Lorraine!

    Debbie, you are so sweet. Thank you!
