in the neighbourhood



Drawing in the neighbourhood, on the hottest day of the year so far.

Next to the drawing, I wrote:
St. Rose of Lima, Roman Catholic Church, Brooklyn New York, Founded 1870. The best part of this drawing is that while working on it people stopped to take a look at what I was doing and even asked to see other drawings. A very sunny day - the first really hot one of the year, with people laughing and talking. The heat is fun, not yet oppressive. The perpetual whrrrrr of the air conditioners has not yet started. There is music. Their are voices. Many languages. Makes me feel like an artist.
