I have been wanting to sketch this old service station for some time. It is located on a rotary in Middleboro, Massachusetts that is difficult to access. This sketch is from a photo taken from the rotary. It is a cool little building that was probably unique at one point in history.

This is a rough line drawing completed using Sketch-up computer program. The space is the proposed Member Grill Room on the first floor of a historic building located in Queens, New York. Typically a quick line drawing is created using the computer for accuracy and then a line drawing is traced over the top to produce the base for a rendering.

Trying to catch up on a few scans. Today we attended a High School graduation cookout and party for the son of a dear friend. Great friends and lots of food including hamburgers on the grill. Faber Castell Pitt Art pens with Holbein watercolors in a Stillman and Birn sketchbook.
Today we spent part of the day enjoying a tour of 6 home gardens hosted by the Orleans Garden Club in Orleans, Massachusetts on Cape Cod. The gardens were gorgeous with all of the blooming flowers and lush greens. This view is from a house with 5 acres of woods planted with shade loving plants and a barn that overlooked this small pond. Wonderful afternoon enjoying nature and listening to some wonderful music at each location. Faber Castell Pitt art pens with Holbein watercolors in a Stillman and Birn sketchbook.

We are getting the exterior of the house painted this week. It has been a long time and is looking great. Paint cans with shades of grey seemed a little boring so I added some color rather than the grey tones being painted on the house.

Traveling back from New York from another club presentation, I stopped in Milford Connecticut. There is a wonderful waterfront with lots of marinas and boats.

A beautiful part of the coastline in Little Neck, New York. This is actually in the borough of Queens in New York City. A peaceful oasis within the city. This caught my eye with the undulating seawall and the contrast between the bright green grass and the very dark rocks.
