Cup of tea.

Highlighted by the sun and deepened by shadow,  lemony and strong (English Breakfast tea, unexpectedly very good, I usually prefer Earl Grey) turned my day into a day of Cup of Tea, everything else faded and this is the only memory left. I guess, many unpleasant moments were forcefully erased, I cannot allow myself to be affected by people who I can't take seriously enough.
I am trying to cherish and enjoy relationships, thoughts, books, what makes my life happier.
I used ink and Kuretake on Fabriano Artistico.

Little restoration.

I  did a little restoration job in Manhattan, matching faux marble in the lobby. Was very interesting to see manhattanites in action, I thought again about a play, written and staged in the lobby, showing people interacting, pieces of their lives unfolding, accidentally witnessed by an artist painting a mural and left unfinished, guessed, questioned. I had this idea years ago while painting a mural (with horses, carriage, boulevard) in one of the lobbies in Manhattan. Would be very interesting decoration for the play, doors opening and closed with sudden light, silhouettes, cars honking...
It was white paint before above the door.
Than I went to Dick Blick Art store and got few watercolor papers and few water soluble pencils and one ink.  Got some delicious treats for my blind cat.  Had street food. Came home very late, call this day a pretty adventurous.

Sunny Breakfast.

Didn't fit into the scanner even in 2 portions. Was trying to get impression of a happy sunny morning. Even life is not perfect, but some moments are. I used ink and Kuretake and couple of pens. Still don't have my art supplies in order, can't find many things, running around too much, but want to start drawing already.

7 minutes sketch.

Was picking up someone at the train station in Coney Island and was so happy to grab my Gamma sketchbook and pencil case, always chilling in my bag with me, and start sketching the building in front of me.  Normally people unhappy to wait for someone longer, I am always praying I'll have more minutes to wait, so I can exercise my pencil, which is probably, handicap by now, from being unused for so long.

Early morning and happy to get my NavBAr back.

Early morning.

After loosing Navigation Bar, I was typing question in Google, found forum, 2 people gave me advice, it was accidentally applied HTML code in my post with sunrise, I deleted it and now back to normal view.
Relocation to a new place could be comparable to a painful illness,  stressful and scary. I still cannot find my brushes and paper, towels and salad spinner, but I am greeted by the sun every morning and it gives me hope that I can start drawing again.

I lost my NavBar.

Checking if I am still able to post from the back door.
Who knows how to get back Navigation Bar? Any advice?
