hudson river drawing -- vermont trip

     It was our hope to stop at some point and spend some time out in nature. Drawing. Do some art for ourselves. That came on Thursday morning

    In Glen Falls, New York ------  there are no waterfalls. 

    But I learned from the hotel desk clerk there was a boat ramp to the Hudson River just off the Big Boom Road. Thursday morning after packing up to go, Jan and I found the Big Boom Road, drove south, and found a grassy area and with convenient park bench.

   From a full hour we both drew on our art pads. Jan did on from inside the car, seated. I drew from the park bench. Hers in graphite pencil. Mine in pencil and water soluble colored pencil.  It was quiet.  It was great.  It was fantastic.  IT  WAS  US !!!
