Despite the appearance, social distancing was practiced by everyone at the exhibition. I sat on a bench and as each person appeared before me I added them to the sketch. There was no clumping of people. I can’t wait until people start crowding together again.

On March 5 I went to The Met. It closed on March 13 due to the pandemic. It was practically empty that day. On Thursday I had a timed ticket for the recently reopened museum. YAY! I’m a member and was instructed to use the 81st Street entrance. I was early, expected a long line and was ready to wait patiently. There was no line at this entrance, the thermometer bearing attendant came to me, my membership card was scanned, my bag examined and I took the (only 2 people permitted) elevator to the 1st floor. There was a bit of a line to get into the new exhibition I was looking forward to seeing but this gave me a chance to use my rusty live-people-actually-in-the-same-space-as-I-was sketching skills.

This week’s NYC Urban Sketchers virtual event took us under water. Flora and fauna. I skipped the flora part. I referred to a photo I snapped in Penn Station on Thursday ( the most people I’ve seen there since the pandemic started) and decided to confuse the commuters.

Referred to a photo of mine and Google fish images.

I had to work on the day of the NYC Urban Sketchers virtual event to Prague so I decided to visit there on Friday. I’ve been craving a nice big crowd and I found one.
