I spend lots of time thinking about how to maintain a visual journal and some days my life is just too boring! However, I was inspired yesterday to fill two sketchbook pages. In the morning I returned to ballet class at Steps Boradway (Manhattan) for the first time in months. Before I retired, I found it difficult to take class once each week, but now hope to have more flexibility in my schedule and MOTIVATION! After class, while waiting to pick up our grandson from Nursery School, I sketched several dancers from the NYC Ballet Fall Season brochure.
We walked our grandson back from the Upper Westside to the Upper Eastside through Central Park and watched 9 huge turtles sunning themselve on rocks at the edge of the water at Turtle Pond. During the remainder of the walk we collected leaves that we wanted to identify and two types of acorns and then had a painting session at home.
