Nectarine Study II

A second quick watercolor study of Nectarines. This study was done with some simple pencil ink work and shading with the fountain pen and  my travel palette containing Holbein watercolors in a Stillman and Birn Beta sketchbook.

Sushi Joy

Friday night with friends at our favorite local sushi restaurant. Sushi Joy is located in a strip mall in Plymouth, Massachusetts and they have wonderful sushi, Japanese and Chinese food. Everyone that works there are very nice and we know the bartenders very well.

Thanksgiving Eve

Thanksgiving in the United States is a holiday for giving thanks and celebrating the harvest. The evening before we spend with dear friends for wonderful food, drinks and conversation at the warm home of Keith and Katherine. This year our architecture classmates from Oklahoma State University joined us from Los Angeles, CA and Brooklyn, NY. The dinner consists of Cheese pizza and Mussels in a seafood essence marinara sauce. This tradition started in New Jersey with Keith’s family as take-out food as way to not to have to cook while prepping for all of the food for Thanksgiving. The homemade marinara is made with lobster bodies cooked in the marinara for the lobster essence. This is served with plenty of bread and grilled local oysters for an appetizer.
