We just got back from whirlwind tour of the Northeast including Upstate New York, Vermont, and Massachusetts.
I have been attempting to keep up my sketchbook.
Here are some of the images:

The trip up was a little grey and got rainy. It was storming when we arrived in Stamford. We visited too briefly and headed up to Vermont.
|Welcome to Vermont...|
The main reason to go to Vermont was for my Godmother's daughter Nora's wedding in Woodstock, VT. The bride and groom went by "Team Floogen". It was a lovely ceremony and included a happy hour the night before at a place called Bentley's and Brunch the day after.
The day of the ceremony, there was a really cool food and art festival in downtown Woodstock.
|Looked good but we stuck with a lobster roll.|
|The first bite is taken with the eye...|
That afternoon I got a bit of sketching in even though rain was a worry. They had some gorgeous buildings in that town, especially the public library...
I also sketched the building adjacent to the library.
|Cool building in the library quad...|
Here are some wedding sketches:
The bride got a wonderful dress at Kleinfeld, lost of detailing. I never got the name of the designer. Sadly, she did not get on the show, but discussing the name "Kleinfeld" gave me an idea of a Seinfeld/Kleinfeld mashup comic for Pop Smoothie
... I will post it this weekend.
The bride and groom left the ceremony on a motorcycle and their cake topper feature and bride and groom motorcycle theme as well.
The next day was a farewell brunch.

Next, we headed up to Danby, VT to visit our friends Andrea, Ed and their daughter Olivia.
I will post the sketches from that the next post, but first, the view from their backyard:
