Sketching the Blizzard of 2015

I was pretty much snowbound today after my area of Long Island received about 16 inches of snow overnight. This morning I pulled up my blinds and sketched the view outside my bedroom window.

Later in the day I decided to venture outside for a while. I wanted to sketch some of the people cleaning off their cars but it was too cold to stand out there. I had an idea and trudged over to the community building to see if it was open...success! I stood inside the foyer by the front windows and was able to see someone digging out their car. Unfortunately the snowplows couldn't be seen from where I was sketching.

I hope everyone kept safe and dry through the storm. Maybe some of you had a chance to sketch too.


  1. Wonderful sketches Joan. Glad you kept busy during the great NYC shutdown!

    1. I almost always keep sketching, either indoors or outdoors.

  2. Wonderful sketches – horrible weather. Joe, your sketches will be great to look at in the middle of the summer when were all complaining about the heat.
