Earlier this week I took a stroll around Brooklyn Botanic Garden with my pochade box. It was lovely and quiet in the late morning, but a few hours later, the idyllic scene was upended by mobs of summer camp kids. Ah, well. What did I expect on a free admission day?! I managed to complete a loose oil sketch:

It wasn’t easy to leave out the dozens of little kids in matching brightly colored t-shirts!!
