Walking, Eating and Sketching in New York

I had a wonderful week in Brooklyn with my son's family, and managed a quick sketch out the window between grandchildren naps. So much fun with these happy little people. This is the Verrazano Bridge on the right. I loved the contrast between the lush green trees and the variety of architectural shapes.
An oasis in Park Slope... Sweet Melissa has chocolate to die for, and a great little garden area in the back.This tree branch made it wonderfully cool back there.

Colorful umbrellas at the Brooklyn Library next to Prospect Park.
The Brooklyn Museum is closed on Monday and Tuesday, so I sat and did this sketch of the Eastern Parkway and another corner of Prospect Park. My sketchbook was nearly blown away in the wind....
Ginko trees and many churches in Brooklyn. This was built in 1889.
Lunchtime meditation in Madison Square Park.


  1. Fabulous work, Faye. Love them all! The church is a favorite. Welcome back.

  2. Thank you! I sure thought of you all on Wednesdays.

  3. These are beautiful, light and colorful and it's fun to read the journal with each picture. Thanks for sharing your fun time in N.Y.

  4. Wonderful Faye! Thanks so much for sharing these. It's fun to see your sketching talent and characteristic, lovely, gentle washes applied to an urban setting.
