This was the most interesting building in a local office park. The corner with sloped glass and the transparent nature of corner in letting the outside in. The reflections of the clouds and American flag in the glass was great. Faber-Castell black pens in a Stillman and Birn Sketchbook.


Shadowbrook Catering

Another site visit for work. Shadowbrook Catering in Shrewsbury, New Jersey was recently purchased by a client of ours and renovation plans are in the works. This was a view in one of the gardens of a beautiful fountain surrounded by yellow daffodils and red tulips. Pelikan watercolors and ink in a S & B Sketchbook.


First Presbyterian Church Oyster Bay

One last sketch from the weekend of art on Long Island. The First Presbyterian Church is in the beautiful hamlet of Oyster Bay on the North Shore of Long Island. It is a beautiful small town on the bay and I was drawn to this church for all of the wood tracery work in the bell tower. The First Presbyterian Church built in 1873 in a historic Carpenter Gothic-style. Its architect was J. Cleveland Cady, who was just beginning his career and would go on to design the original Metropolitan Opera House, the American Museum of Natural History, buildings at Yale University, Trinity College, and 23 other churches, but he never designed any other churches in the Carpenter Gothic-style. Simple line drawing at lunch with Faber-Castell Pitt pens in a Stillman and Birn Alpha Sketchbook.
