Bubble tea.

Sketch on 84 street, while waiting. We had amazing bubble tea with fresh fruits, took our dogs for cleaning and pulling teeth, had aqua massage, got some presents and cute perfume, eat falafel and wraps in "Sahara" and best Russian salad, made by turkish cook and watch "Ermolovi"-stupid soap opera.

Red trees in process.

This panels probably 6 or more feet tall. I have 5 of them and horizontal on the table. I have to do it pretty abstract, no leafs, very quick. Working first time with this designer, she is very young, with green eyes. I put music and moved furiously from panel to panel with 8 foot ladder. Tomorrow I am going by myself. 3, 5 or more hours of driving,  so I will enjoy thinking.

Yea, don't get scared...

Red trees, designer wants red Sakura in bloom, so today I did tree skeletons in few panels. Gotta figure out how to deal with this slippery transparent paint, called architectural.

Sketching people.

Using pencil and brush pen in Moleskine plain.

Japanese trees.

Glazed and Lustered wall with trees.
I had a lot of fun doing it. Used Japanese dustless chalk for sketching, I got at Jetpens, really love this chalk. Gives you control and comes off easy.

Quiet Wednesday.

Sketches in the doctor's office and Jack Daniels from the concert Upstate. Jack is probably now finished in Manhattan and I spend my day drawing present for my daughter's friend's Birthday. Only colors left and I'll try sparkly glaze. Tomorrow evening, may be.

For my friends.

This is a present for my friends. They are moving far away. I am thankful for our beautiful friendship for so many years. Now rushing to their Goodbye Party. As an idiot I framed it before scanning, so colors are a little dim behind the glass. :-)


Our first house Upstate. Old watercolor.
