A few weeks ago after my usual appointment I went to The Met with the express purpose to sit in front of the Pelez mural and draw another clown. An absolutely marvelous mural and I am totally enthralled. It has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that there is a very long bench positioned right in front of it. That’s just the cherry on top.

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.

I went to Panera for lunch but this time I ignored the people. No eating until I finished the drawing.

What was stealthy about this? Well maybe the gigantic Milton Avery book that was opened in front of me and the stack of mysteries separating me from everyone else. I was a camouflaged sketcher.

It helped that no one was paying any attention also.

Stillman and Birn Zeta sketchbook, pencil, Woody water soluble black crayon. Acrylic paint later at home. Commercial alphabet stamps and Stayz On pigment ink.

A random key and collage fodder for scale. It’s hard to throw out a key. I think it is a rule of nature or physics that a day later a locked box will appear.

I joined a group of co-workers for the Spring Meeting of the American Society for Microbiology at the Hotel Pennsylvania which is conveniently right across Seventh Avenue from Penn Station.

I paid attention, wrote down a thing or two and topped off my 2017 continuing education obligation.
