Ferry Sketch

Today we drove back from Maine. It wasn't a bad ride. The roads were all clear and by the time we got to the middle of Massachusetts there was hardly any snow on the ground. When we got to New London and the Cross Sound Ferry we were told that the ferry was running about 30 minutes late...try an hour. So instead of leaving New London at 6 we left at 7pm. It was a long day.

The ferry was very crowded which gave me a variety of subjects to sketch. The concession line is always one of my favorites because when one person moves out of sight the next one just takes their place. 

A lot of people were traveling with their dogs. I did a quick sketch of one.


  1. Glad you got home safely! I like drawing people in lines, too -- they all take similar poses as they queue up, approach the checkout, etc., so you can anticipate how they're going to move.

  2. Glad it wasn't a bad drive. We slipped out of having more snow here, just freezing rain mixed with a little sleet. Food always makes someone stand still doesn't it?

  3. Sounds like you got home safe anyway. Super sketches Joan!

  4. Glad you made it home safely. These are great sketches. Cute doggie. Thanks for sharing your holidays.
