It’s called a “BLIND PORTRAIT”………..drawing the subject without looking at the paper.  JUST DRAW.

 I took the same class years ago at The School of Visual Arts…….the instructor was Jack Potter [recently deceased].

Can the face of any of these New Yorkers compete with HELEN of TROY?  Would PARIS abduct any one of them?  Would a thousand ships get launched to get her back?  Possibly…………. one of them!

Fun in the sun SUNDAY in Central Park

Sundays in Central Park are always a delight……..New Yorkers and tourists……….all “doing their thing”…..or trying to “out do” one another.  Sunning……boating……..running……..bicycling…………reading……eating…………walking the dog………..and slumming.

IT IS ALL THE ENTERTAINMENT ONE COULD POSSIBLY ASK FOR.

Tonight on the great lawn is Movie Time!  HORROR!  THE SHINING.  Thousands will gather for a picnic………wine and fine dine for some.  Others will just bring buckets of popcorn.  It is a warm night…..the stars will be out…….and New Yorkers will get free entertainment.  How great is that!
