This is a detail of the lower right quadrant (third ?) of a large-ish watercolor that caught my eye at The Morgan Library and Museum on Friday.

On Friday Shirley, Eunice, Benedicte and I spent a couple of hours at The Morgan Library & Museum where “Drawn to Greatness: Master Drawings from the Thaw Collection” was on exhibition in two galleries. The beauty and quality of the drawings took us all by surprise. I looked at everything and then circled back to a couple of favorites – difficult decision since every wall contained favorites. The first drawing I copied was in a corner and I really was an obstruction but nobody bumped my arm and whenever I said it was ok to stand in front of me everyone said “No, it’s fine . I can see.”

Just a quickie doodle of two sketchers across from me. Everyone was paying attention to Raylie as she spoke about this and that.

I was resting my feet, she was also resting and oblivious so I took advantage.

I met up with the NYC Urban Sketchers yesterday. I had never been to the Cloisters before and was totally unprepared for the magnificent park setting. I also wasn’t prepared for the Very Hilly terrain. Yes, terrain in NYC. Plus, once inside with the tiny Met sticker affixed to my chest, I discover the hilly terrain extends indoors also in the form of stairs to here and there, most importantly to the ladies room.

I explored for a bit, in and out of galleries and through passageways, but returned to what had caught my eye almost immediately.

When I saw that MoMA recently acquired a self portrait painted by a favorite artist and that it was FANTASTICALLY BEAUTIFUL and would come to live on the fifth floor starting November 22 I decided that this was something I should copy. This past Thursday, the 30th, found me smack dab in front of the painting, blocking gallery tour groups and everyone else, with a big smile on my face. Oh. It did not disappoint. So beautiful it made my heart hurt.
