Here is today’s kitty:

This was an exciting day because the Budweiser Clydesdales came to our town! They we here to celebrate 85 years of the repeal of Prohibition. Plus, Blue Point Brewery is getting ready to open at their new location on Main Street. I was lucky (and smart) to get a great spot to do some sketching! I managed some time to do one of the trucks and the big guy right in front of me. It was very exciting to be able to sketch them. The new Blue Point Brewery is behind the truck.

Also, some photos! Main Street was packed from Waverly to just east of the Theater but I knew they were marching all the way to the east end of Main Street and the crowd was surprisingly lean there.

Oh, and today’s Inktober sketch….

Nocturnal Kitty

John dragged me out of the house this evening. Still groggy from this cold or whatever sinus thing I am getting over. So annoying. All I want to do is nap and cough. A friend reminded me of the benefits of tea and that’s been helping the cough.

One thing about being a dedicated sketcher. I can sit anywhere and find something to draw. I never used to be that way. The irony is when I was in college, we were asked to fill up a sketchbook in a week and we were all freaking out. Now I would be like “just one?” 😂

Ahh, youth is wasted on the young.

So although I feel blasé, I managed to sketch the tree in front of a local Church on Main Street. It was there and I needed to draw SOMETHING. I figured while I was out I would do an Urban Sketch with kitty.

Kitty is resting under the tree. She had too many oysters from mooching so she needs to sleep them off.

This evening I kept is simple. My favorite, ink and washes.

Kitty #125

Yes! That is correct! I counted snd recounted a few days ago. I waited for today’s kitty to celebrate! It’s only 2 days short of our village’s 125th anniversary so it couldn’t have been timed better. I chose the Brick House Brewery (BHB) for today’s sketch because they are in the oldest business building in Patchogue, they are one of the oldest breweries on Long Island and they are hosting the joint effort brew “Pop Fizz Clink,” brewed by BHB and Blue Point Brewery, to celebrate the 125th Anniversary of Patchogue.

Kitty strolled by on her way to see if she could hang out in the Hops Garden out back of BHB because pets are permitted, ok, dogs, but kitty thinks she’s a Chihuahua so that counts for her.
