Hope everyone survived the storm ok....
This week we have been invited to sketch at Jen Brady's house at 6:30 PM. Jen is located on 70 W Lakewood Street off of North Ocean Ave. She has a creek near her house and other landscape that would be nice for sketching.
Please let us know if you will be attending so we can give Jen a rough count...also, next week, we will probably move the sketch time up to 6PM, now that it is getting dark earlier. You can leave a comment below if you'd like to let us know you are attending....

This week we are going to go to Sayville to sketch some store fronts.....trying to get as much "outdoor time" in as we can before it gets too cool and it's already getting chilly in the evening. We'll start out over by Starbuck's, in case anyone needs a warm brew...and then we can fan out and sketch our favorite shops. If you can't find a parking spot on Main street, there is parking behind Starbuck's.

You can't do sketches enough. Sketch everything and keep your curiosity fresh.” John Singer Sargent
This Wednesday we will be sketching at Blue Point....Make sure you bring a chair...We will be meeting at the very end of Blue Point Avenue. From Main Street, turn onto Blue Point Ave and head toward the water....go to the very end, there's a little pier there where you can park...we will be by the water or along the street by the water.
We did some very nice sketches here last year...there are some nice houses for those of you wanting to do something other than maritime scenes...there's a marshy area, great for a sunset and it's a great area to do skies.
