En Plein Air: May Day (Oil, 12 x 9)


I went this morning to Forest Hills Gardens and painted the Congregational Church. It is amazing to see the tree leaves are budding.

Plein Air: The LIRR Overhead Bridge at Lefferts Ave. (12 x 16 Oil)


I went there this morning because the weatherman said it was going to be a sunshiny day today. Unfortunately, it was cloudy and windy and the sky didn't clear up till noon. Glad I had on my heavy jacket. By then, my painting was almost done. However, I did make some adjustment when he sun came out.

Louis Armstrong Eternity Band

I went this evening to the Central Library, Queens, for the Louis Armstrong Eternity Band's concert. The six musicians made beautiful Armstrongs' Jazz. During their performance, I made the following sketch and gave it to the band at the intermission as a gift.

Air Stewardess Waiting for the Bus

I took a walk in the afternoon. It was kind of windy. When I came to the intersection of Lefferts and Metropolitan, I saw a pretty lady waiting for the Q10 bus in wind. Judging by her attire and baggage, obviously, she was an air stewardess. There happened to be a bench near the bus stop for me to sit. I quickly took out my sketchbook and made this piece.
