This and That From Early July

I have several sketchbook pages that I did before our recent trip tp Martha's Vineyard - and just finished painting them since our return.  Each week I arrive at Wagner Park in Battery Park City during the final minutes of the morning art session, and draw the newest flowers in bloom.  I love spending time painting them, so I wait until I'm home and have a variety of brushes, and some quiet time.  This page is from early July.

Later that week we met our oldest son, his wife, and 3 boys in Riverside Park on one the hottest days of early July.  One grandson was shooting baskets with our son.  One grandson was asked to join a softball game with neighborhood kids.  And the youngest in the family was sound asleep in his stroller.  It was too hot to move, so as I sat on a blanket in the grass, I sketched what was in front of me!
