Painting without pre-drawing, mostly imagined, based on a plant that's been outside all summer.
I actually did glazing here, for once. I went outside to rake leaves between painting dabs. I hate waiting for things to dry.

I drew this in the 30 minutes I was in the waiting room, during the 4 hour procedure to get a new crown.
It was for a bicuspid. They told me they'd never made such a small crown in office before, that 6 months ago they wouldn't have attempted it. LOTS of difficulty and tension, but it worked beautifully.
Modern dental technology is amazing and I have a great new tooth. But wow, it was a tough session.

The dog sculpture by Giacometti is in New York's Museum of Modern Art. It's the one thing I stood and quickly drew. There was such a huge crowd that day, no place to sit on the floor or I'd have gotten trampled.
And so few benches anywhere! Museum goers have to be on their feet, moving!

Back from 3 nights in NYC. I planned to draw, but only did one tiny thing. Mostly we walked (miles!), ate, explored street fairs, and had fun watching people.
We saw an excellent play at Fordham University ($12 tickets!) and hit a couple museums just to get out of the chilly wind.

We went into the old library in Ogunquit, built in 1896. I found this grandfather clock with interesting symbols on the front.
Down the sides of the door were tool shapes, stencilled in silver. The hourglass shape was on the center top of the door. (Click to enlarge.)
At the very top was the compass and square symbol, related to the Masons.
