Demerise, and I had a wonderful time representing The Firefly Gallery yesterday for the Northport Artwalk. It was a great opportunity to meet the many art lovers not just in Northport but in the surrounding towns of Long Island and as well. Thank you to everyone who came out to support the local long island art scene!!

Pastel sketch at Caumset Park in Lloyd Harbor, New York.
I have been doing more plein air sketching lately. Today I went to Caumset State Park -- a spectacular place -- and rode my bike through the sprawling grounds in order to sketch this seaside scene. I'm using these enormous pastels on cheap paper, but I think even with my clunky supplies, there is something so special about drawing from life. For one thing, it seems like my eyes are able to see details that the iphone camera just blends together. When I looked at this scene, I saw so many colors, but when I look at the photo vs. my drawing, there are so few. Have you ever noticed that? It makes me want to venture out more and brave the sand gnats to do more drawing. :)
