September Saturday

Saturday was perfection. The light just so. Dramatically changing clouds and deep blue sky.
An inquisitive swan at Wooley Pond.
In Southampton, I happened upon the school homecoming parade.
Chas Addams: Family and Friends is currently on view.
The famous drawings of the Addams Family are familiar. There is also a selection of his New Yorker covers. The covers with lighthouse imagery especially drew my eye. The small studies he painted for each cover are inspiring and amazing. I've included close ups of each sketch so that you can get an idea how wonderful they are. The show is up until Halloween, a return visit will be required.
