Posts Tagged ‘pool party’

A minute ago I sang the praises of a tent.  Now I’m escalating the whole thing to gotta-have-a-pool, f’r-heavensake. Just kidding.  It’s just that these people got along very well and the pool added extra splash.  I didn’t take notes on what drinks were served. That may have been an influence, too.

There was no posturing, no competition.  Loved it.  Pure relaxation. Pure fun.

Thank  you, Harold.—————————————-

After the three-quarters of a mile long private drive way came the gate, the gardens , the big house, the coach house, and finally the pool house. After the pool house came the veranda, then the pool and then greenery as far as the eye could see. We were celebrating the host’s birthday, something with a zero in it. These people had found me because they had saved the drawing I did of them SEVENTEEN years ago (in Winnetka) and my signature was clearly legible on the drawing. They displayed the 1997 drawing in a grandiose baroque frame. I love it!
In my drawings nobody every gains weight, well, the guys do sometimes but women stay 36-22-36. All their lives, it’s a rule, I know where my bread is 14ClubLeahyBbuttered. The guys get to bear the burden of the humor and, gentlemen and scholars all,  they know how to take it. They shrug when I explain this, “well, yeah, that’s how it is.”
Fabulous party, thank you, Cathy! I drew thirty-three people in 2½ hours. Here are a few of them.

13Belvidere6bA lovely back yard party for family, neighbors and friends. It was an unseasonably chilly July weekend and 13Belvidere6I bundled up to be able to sit still and concentrate on my drawing.  Someone told me the water in the pool was eighty.  No wonder the kids were shivering in their beach towels and were anxious to get this drawing thing done so they could jump back into the warm water. The pictures illustrate this very well.  It was funny to see them sitting there, all wet and wrapped up, but when I turned the drawing around for them to see, they beamed.  This is so much fun!

I drew thirty-one people in two hours.

Thank you, Mike!———————————————–

An apartment complex with a pool set out in a green environment—why would you want to live anywhere else.  And the management throws parties!  So, of course, they chose me to draw the caricatures. Here are a few of the pictures.  Btw, the DJ was excellent: Greg Carter, gcarter@gac-entertainment.com

Thank you, Samantha!——————————————————————-
