As usual iPat (BFF) is playing her role as Stress Reliever Supreme by keeping me distracted. For reward I am keeping her plugged in until the thunder starts. A storm is rapidly approaching from the west. It will reach the city in about 1-1/2 hours and my house not too much later. Wind shear, etc. I’m going to listen to one more hyperactive weatherman do his report and then I will watch junky, fluffy TV and ignore everything else.
I’m going to have to time my dinner very carefully and make sure My Other BFF – The Microwave – has power.
This is one of those times that an 80 minute train ride (round trip), short subway ride (down- and then later back up-town) doesn’t seem to make sense if I will only be there for 2 hours. It is a no-brainer when it is coupled with other activities before the 2:30 outdoor, in one of the most wonderful places, life drawing class. Since I have a 10 trip railroad ticket already, Metrocard is full and I have a bunch of quarters for the parking meter in a baggie, I pretend that there is no cost. So: Justified Rationalization or Just Plain Lazy?
I was SO PISSED OFF this morning. My BFF iPat came to the rescue just in the nick of time.
I have a hard time dusting – imagine if I had to clean up the yuck if my brain exploded. Yikes.

I think I’m going out and hang at Panera with a lemonade for a while (couple of hours he he).
(Practicing with the vector tool – Sketch Club – with the added benefit that it makes me forget about this new heat wave.)
I joined my friends at MoMA this morning and checked out the new exhibitions on the second and sixth floors. We were all wowed by the Picasso print “The Weeping Woman, I” State VII,1937. Heartbreakingly Beautiful.
Next we headed all the way downtown to Battery Park City to join the outdoor life drawing class that is held there every Wednesday until October. The teacher and her assistant drive up in a little park vehicle filled to brimming with drawing paper, pencils of every type, watercolors, brushes, charcoal – everything! I took some newsprint and a pencil and tried drawing the model as she did quickie poses one after another. What a mess I made. When she started on the longer poses and I saw that they were going to be more of the same but longer I ditched the pencil and paper and turned on iPat and took out the stylus.
I also ditched the model and drew the model-sketchers instead.
