Summer Days

As Labor Day weekend fades in the rear view mirror, it’s time for me to come to grips with the fact that summer is ending. I have always hated to see the end of summer in New York – warm weather, more free time, and friends coming to visit. This summer is no exception. While I have matured beyond crying in the bathroom before the first day of school (that was many, many years ago, not last week) I can still get a little blue about the whole thing. These are some drawings I made on the Highline in New York City, with a few friends, in late August. Some of them live in New York, others came from far away to visit.

People in New York are OUT in the summer – it’s so great to watch them and draw them! We New Yorkers tend to hibernate more when the weather is cold…

Above is my friend Margaret drawing, her ubiquitous cup of iced coffee not far from her side.

And here is my friend Lapin drawing another friend, Rosa Lee. Rosa is drawing the flowers and Lapin is drawing Rosa drawing the flowers, and I am drawing Lapin drawing Rosa drawing the flowers. See what I mean about summer? You do things like that! So much fun and the best way to relax and expand your horizons artistically. Now that it’s fall, it’s time to put all that relaxed energy and expansion to use!

OK fall, I’m ready…almost…
