A Rainy September Day in New York

A gray Monday, nearing the end of September.

A good day for indulging in the joys of life, like some fresh homemade lunch and working on some visual satisfaction.

Today's lunch started with an overflow of veggies in the fridge.  One of the bonuses of living with others who's schedules are as full as mine, is buying the same things from the market.  This gives me another opportunity to use one of my favorite skills, improvising; more specifically, working with what is available.
Homemade Pesto, made with Basil grown in the front yard, fresh Broccoli, Zucchini, Cucumber and Bow Tie pasta.
I like to chop everything into small pieces so I can just barely cook the veggies.  Say 'no' to mushy veggies. 
There's a small forest just outside of my bedroom window and door to the make-shift studio (also called, garage) below the bedroom.  I love walking out of or down to the garage when working on my art.  Today's rain and gray sky makes for a perfect autumn day in the forest.

I do my painting in the garage.

This paper is the coolest!

Hopefully, tonight I'll get some time to work on the details with my awesome set of prismacolor pencils.
