Blues on the Bridge is a day of free outdoor concerts, with food trucks and vendors in downtown Binghamton. This was my first year going, and I brought my sketchbook to give the Skirmisher statue another try.
I wasn’t happy with the first attempt, here:
But after walking around a bit, and running into a few family and friends, I sat for another try. Pretty happy with this one, especially as I just put ink to paper, no pencil outline first. Calling it a day!
My niece pointed out that those green things growing outside might be ostrich fiddleheads! These are good for eating, after boiling and sautéing. So I picked several and tried them. It may have been a little early to pick, because there was brown stuff that was rather difficult to remove.
But I did like the taste, so I decided to buy some at our local market. These were a little larger, with no brown ‘stuff’ on them. Very yummy, like a delicate asparagus flavor. Of course, garlic, butter and salt helped. It seems like a bit much effort needed, so I won’t be doing these very often, but I’m very glad I gave them a try!
If you ever feel invisible, there’s a pretty easy way to change that.
Just try wearing an iguana. In green. To match your outfit.
This gentleman wore his one day at the Farmer’s Market last summer, and
I am only now getting around to sketching it.
