Indian Summer

Today was another beautiful, 70-something day, so I tried to squeeze in a little more drawing before it gets too cold to stay outside for hours on end. I was watching a group of highschoolers congregating in Union Square, another thing there will probably be less of once winter sets in.

The Peking

Today was so beautiful outside I decided to go down to the seaport and work, and get a little drawing in too. The Peking always seems so enormous every time I go down there, like it's just another building in downtown Manhattan. Except it's floating in the water...

Fall Foliage

Today, Chris and I went up to see the leaves at the New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx. The colors were absolutely amazing! We just wandered around the whole day, walked through the forest, got lost. It was so relaxing.

At one point we passed this ridiculously red Japanese maple, and I made Chris stop so I could make a drawing. While we were stopped there, this little family of chipmunks started playing around a bush just past the maple, and were scurrying around the entire time. It was like being in the middle of a scene from Bambi.
