Project T-Scape
I discovered that the Bowdoin T station has installations of enlarged historic drawings and etchings of Boston. The USS Constitution nerd in me needed to draw the one of ships arriving in Boston Harbor.

This is one of my personal favorite sketches so far. It was Scooter City that day!

At the Kent Street station, I sketched a bit of the the gorgeous building that is Temple Ohabei Shalom. It is the oldest Jewish congregation in Massachusetts. While I sat sketching, a little boy and his grandmother were waiting for the train. The boy saw that I was drawing the Temple and said, “If you go across the street and through those doors and up the stairs somewhere up there is my classroom!” I asked him what he was learning and he answered in Hebrew.

I was going to finish this one the way I have finished most of the other T-scapes, but I realized I really like it just the way it is, sketchy blocks of color and all.

That building is the most beautiful Walgreens I’ve ever seen!

Hello All!

Perhaps you have noticed the lack of new T-scapes lately and I wanted to let you in on what is up. I have done about 90 T-stops and I have 30 more to go. I fully intend to finish this project ad I would like to compile the drawings into a book somehow. I am taking a painting class and working with my teacher to get all of the drawings up to par, scanned, and ready to become a book someday. There are also some stops that I feel I could have portrayed better and I would like to re-visit them. I expect this to be a rather long process and I will be shifting my focus for the time being to editing and scanning. Plus, the weather has not been very conducive to drawing outside lately. I will let you know when I have more drawing to share, but for now I didn’t want to leave everyone hanging!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone and enjoy the snow!
