Paint Cans

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.

Milford Boatworks

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. This is a quick pen and ink sketch from the car of a small out building at the Milford Boatworks. Lamy Safari fountain pen with Noodler’s black ink in a Stillman and Birn sketchbook.

Little Neck Shoreline

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.

Garden Fountain II

We spent a very nice Father’s Day at my In-laws house. The weather was beautiful sitting on the patio listening to the fountain spilling into the pool. The blue on the water is too much and should be more subtle with a little darker background.
