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!
