Stage one...a fight to LAX. Definitely an adventure since unbeknown to us we needed a visa for our final destination. Had to do an electronic one with my sister’s help in Maine. It took about 2 1/2 hours to get that done. Meanwhile we missed the original flight to CA and were put in a later flight but with enough time to make the connection to flight 2.

On Saturday morning I did a few sketches in Union Square Park. There was a Saturday market going on too.
Once again I couldn't change the size of the images on the iPad, so when my trip starts I will probably have to upload the smaller images. I hope you don't mind.
Glad to see some of you respond with your favorites of the alcohol ink tiles I posted yesterday. Debi loved them and took all of them for the shop. I promised her more sunflower tiles when I get back.

I decided this had too many images to try and post them on my iPad, so I went straight to my laptop. I have some of my alcohol ink tiles at a gift shop/gallery called, "The Catbird Seat" in Sayville, the next town over from me. The owner suggested that I do some sea themed ones for the upcoming summer season. I will be taking these over to the shop before I leave on my trip next Tuesday. These were a bit harder to do than the flowers I've posted before because they need to pretty much resemble the creature I was aiming for. The flowers can be a bit more abstract. I like the way these came out. Do you have a favorite?

On Saturday after sketching in Union Square I headed uptown to the High School of Art & Design which was having a Draw-a-Thon fundraiser. Several of the NYC Urban Sketchers were already there since it had started at 10 am. I didn't get there until about 3:30. I did a few warmup sketches and then did two of the models in their setting in the room. This was the second Draw-a-Thon I've gone to and I didn't get a chance to sketch any of the costumed models since the event winds down at 6 pm when pizza is served and raffles are drawn. It was a fun event!
