I chose the poem that David Pasinski wrote because it’s about friendship and contained a clever turn of phrase. While I pondered how to illustrate it with an allusion to Syracuse “spirits,” I joined the urban sketchers for the first time on a blue-sky day in November.

The location was at Salt City Market—also a first for me. I painted people lounging in red Adirondack chairs near Audra Linsner’s brand new mural and saw kids playing on bright green Astroturf. One of my closest friends was also there, painting.

Ambassadors were part of the scene. When I got home, it was clear to me that this convivial scene would be the subject. I used gouache for the re-designed background, and graphite for the pigeons.

As far as friends go
I promise you to go there
And maybe further
