How long did it take me to find this perfume bottle? I wandered through zillions of small Greek and Roman artifacts on millions of shelves behind thousands of glass display things. My still dilated eyes gave me no problem but my feet were suffering the beginning stages of museum-itis and were whimpering quietly. It was so much smaller than I was looking for but finally I spotted it, thankfully at eye level. As a plus it is quite pretty.

After sketching the bicycles I caught a bus, the temp was 90+ and much too hot to walk, up to The Met. I carried the Everyday in May 2017 list with me and was looking forward to locating items in the museum’s collection that would fulfill things on the list. At home I had surfed their “collection” section to find pertinent drawable things and their locations. Once there, map in hand, I went searching. Easy peasy, right? Ha ha ha. You would think so. But, as I’ve found in past “scavenger hunts”, I was looking for one thing and came upon an item which I liked better.

I call this “Essence of Bicycle “. I had just left the doctor’s office, walked around the corner at 58th Street, eyes freshly and fully dilated, spotted the bikes chained to the traffic sign in full blazing near noon sunlight, stood in a sliver of shade with iPat and squinted and sketched. Details? Forget about it. I was lucky I didn’t bump into them.

One of the models for this drawing got very stiff and achey but, after a brief bout of wiggling, twitching and some dramatic groans, quickly settled down and resumed the pose.

I have a couple of hundred painted, stamped, etc. tags – most of which are gathered together in what I consider books. The pages of this one are parts of a larger silkscreen based on a sketchbook drawing done while in MoMA’s Sculpture Garden one day years ago. They are part of my large collection of hand made artist’s books.

It would be stretching it a bit to call this my “favorite” tool but to sketch my actual all-time favorite would really tax my straight line abilities and would probably bore iPat and me silly – nothing personal Apple Pencil.

This is a very large and heavy book filled with full-page prints, some in color, but the majority are black and white. I bought this book long before even the thought of being an artist occurred to me. I have always been drawn to prints and have accumulated a large number of books containing them and it was difficult deciding which cover to draw for this topic.

Joke was on me. I thought this would be easy to draw.
