This week’s theme was potted plants and as boring as that may be it inevitably resulted in the usual foolishness and hilarity.

Jes and I took the M3 bus down Fifth Avenue, got off at the library and walked through Bryant Park and then down to Herald Square where we found some chairs and listened to music, talked and sketched. We walked up 34th Street, I peeled off at Penn Station and Jes continued walking to 11th Avenue and the Megabus back to Baltimore.

I was with Jes who I met during the portrait drawing zoom sessions from Germany. She took a Megabus from Baltimore and met me outside The Met one Thursday. We looked at art and sketched all day. We had a snack and drew each other and then headed to the Fayyum portraits and Oceana. We were escorted out of the building at 5:00.

Jes, who came up from Baltimore to spend the day at The Met with me, and I took some time turning our sketchbooks upside down to copy a Bazelitz upside down portrait.

Animals, everyone was some kind of an animal. A dog encountering a porcupine, a hummingbird feeding on nectar, a tiny lobster, a monkey, a dog learning German, fish and a chicken laying a giant egg.
