I had time to kill between my appointment and meeting up with Shirley and Sylvie so I went to the public space on Madison Avenue and 56th Street. Blurry people concentrating on their breakfasts, conversations, newspapers made unsuspecting models.

The reading room is shaded by trees and umbrellas. There are selections of books and newspapers and people actually reading.

Workshop was finished and while we all waited for the throw down and group photo I sketched some random people ” over there”. Well one of them was actually a sketcher who didn’t realize we were all gathering together.

While Katie was demonstrating I started sketching the workshop attendees, occasionally getting up to see what she was doing. It was hard to get a glimpse but I did pay attention to what she was saying. I happened to have a folded, blank, one-page book in my purse, ahem, just in case the opportunity for non-workshop sketching arose. The wrong hand is very eager to take advantage of the proper hand’s circumstances.

The aromas wafting across the street from the little red shack were making my tummy rumble.
