Poolside...


Here are observations from my weekend at the Red Hook Pool, taken from my trusty 4" by 6" sketchbook. Buddy (above) is a recently retired school teacher. This guy knows how to relax in style! Below are studies of kids playing tetherball (a game which I find visually striking). You can see more glimpses of life at the pool here and here.

A  tetherball game      ...or an scene from Lord of the Flies?

Goliath and David?

tetherball, or sun dial?

The Umbrellas of Red Hook

You can see more from my sketchbook right here.

May the light of August shine brightly upon you...
...but don't forget to wear sunscreen!
