Lynn Goes Italian!
Not sure why I've never gone in before, but this day I did. It's smaller than both the bakery and Jalisco's. Six or seven tables at the most and two outside under canvas sun umbrellas. I ordered half a hot pastrami on rye and water and sat at a table to draw.
I chose this woman and her very young son who were sitting the furthest away from me. I would have loved to have drawn another couple, an elderly gentleman with a waist length beard and his rather heavy set female companion. But he kept looking right at me, so I thought better of it. Besides I was quite drawn to this young woman's purple baby wrap. I remembered when my daughter was an infant I had these types of carriers to carry her close to my heart while walking around. I knew how good that felt.
I liked the cloth green, white and red Italian flag curtains. I actually stole a few things from different parts of the room and put them together to make my picture. But if you've never been there you wouldn't know that. It's fun being creative that way when drawing.
Now my lunch places close to work cover three different countries: Germany, Mexico and now Italy!
I wish we had a falafel stand but we don't. Maybe I should open one!
