For the first time, this crapola month of February, I made it into the city. Phew. I was actually grateful that I had to subject my eyeball to torture again. This time there was no drama – I was calm cool and collected – and presto whammo zap! it was finished and I walked a mile down cold, snowless Madison Avenue and waited for Shirley at the Morgan Library. There is a Really Nice Exhibition there right now: “Embracing Modernism: Ten Years of Drawings Acquisitions”. We thoroughly enjoyed it and played a bit of a game. We went through the exhibit and secretly picked out what we believed would be the other’s favorite piece. Well there was no question at all. We each chose both the Kurt Schwitter collage and the Hannelore Baron monotype mixed media collage. Of course.

It is hard to draw other artist’s drawings so when we spotted a sweet bust in the lobby we simultaneously zeroed in on it. The security guard was extremely interested in what we were doing (in a non-security way) and kept passing by and peeking over our shoulders. It seems no one can decide if this bust is the real deal or a fake.

Then to Moonstruck (coffee shop) for lunch and I scarfed down blueberry pancakes like there was no tomorrow. Yum.

At Penn Station there turned out to be a twenty minute wait until the train was to arrive so I got some commuter sketching out of my system.

I worked faster than I should have and was a bit sloppy. But, man, it’s been so long. I Missed Commuters this stinkin’ cold slushy month.

More TV people.

Some TV shows are perfect for sketching since the camera repeatedly returns to the same shot, lingers there for awhile and no one moves around very much.

If the sun doesn’t melt my car soon (um, before lunch) I’m going to be forced to make my own coffee. Oh. Then I guess the sun will have to work on the streets. I make crappy coffee.

I have a zillion ideas floating around in my noggin but, so far, all they are doing is float, none have landed.

Today my car is encased in a lovely 1/2″ of ice.
This past weekend I worked both days – WOW – so this is what human contact is like. Sigh.
Is it just this cold, gray, winter icy snow, I’ve forgotten what it is like to walk around the neighborhood, stuff.

Or
Maybe it is compounded by MOMA withdrawal.
I don’t have a clue and it is annoying.
