Lunch with Nina
It’s been awhile. This time we took our table sketchbooks in hand. I did 6 sketches of Nina–I think she did more of me–and these are the two I like best. We were having a serious conversation about many things plus concentrating on our sketching, so my one comment is that in every drawing I did Nina looks so stern! But in fact we laughed a lot too.
Indian food. Always a delight.
We always come bearing gifts, and Nina brought me two Moleskine sketchbooks which will be put to good use. I’ve heard so much about them, and now I can see for myself. We also stopped in a very appealing little shop on Broadway, Eve & Nico. They sell wonderful things made by a women’s craft cooperative in Africa. Nina purchased a colorful mandala coaster woven from recycled telephone wire and then slipped it into my backpack. Thanks Nina!
The hands of a friend are always beautiful.
