AEDM 2011 #10: Doodling-on-Hudson
Today was an exploring AND doodling day! New schools and obligations are imminent, as is winter weather, so I am cramming in as much as I can before organized chaos and chilly days descend upon the household. This afternoon we went to the little artsy town of Nyack, about 30 miles north of NYC. Picked up a yummy brioche & a jar of homemade honey at the farmers market, ate gelato, each picked out a new book, then took our Crayola oil pastels (I've been hooked on them ever since my last art date with Shannon in Kansas City) and our journals to the Hudson waterfront (that's the Tappan Zee bridge in the background) and scribbled away. Topped off the afternoon by fattening up the birds with a bit of our brioche. There is so much to do in Nyack -- we didn't even put a dent in the place. Such an easy drive from where we are, so we'll be back for sure!
