Umbrella Girl

This is a quick drawing from an old photograph of a girl with an umbrella walking down Avenue of Americas in NYC.  This is done in a tiny 3×5 Strathmore sketchbook with a black #5 Micron pen.

Old Blue

This car has a history, a short one.  When my husband was in the military, he found this car in some Northwestern state and bought it.  He drove it all the way across country to his mom as a gift.  This was at least two decades ago, and sadly, his mom never drove it or used it, and so it sits.  We’ve had people offer to take it off of her hands, but she refuses.  Odd, right?  It’s a robin’s egg blue color and is starting to rust pretty good.  It would probably be an easy fix up for someone who has the love for it.  Sad.  I’ve photographed it many times, and drawn it a couple as well.  Here it is in my moleskin sketchbook, first done in pencil, then in Micron black pen.  Enjoy.
