This house in Cape May Point, called the Flora Dune, was my favorite for some unknown reason; I was drawn to it, though there were, even then, certainly more interesting houses on the Point. Flora's rather plain. I suspect it had something to do with the way the house is situated; more than other houses, it seemed to me to be wholly oriented out toward the bay. I kind of remember that I thought someday I'd have this house ... I'll have to go see if it's still there!

Isn't strange how pencil work leads to our best ideas. those sketches show promise for some great future work. Perhaps I need to show some of those sketch book works. I think mine would wilt by comparison. Best

Ah, in the midst of renovations you are dreaming of another house... I can see the appeal of this one - lovely drawings!

Laura, I came over to thank you for your visit to my blog. I love what I see here. Cooincidentally my latest post is my Hopper fake.
I love the masthead on your blog.

I'd love to see pages of your sketchbook, Bill; I've always favored works on paper, and especially sketchbooks and unfinished drawings.
Your comment made me laugh, Mineke--you're right on target no doubt!
Thanks, Mary. Your Hopper "fake" is amazing; I love the buildings outside the window--very Hopper; that color should be called Hopper Brick or something. But I have to ask: why do you keep it the refrigerator? I'm guessing it slows the drying ...?
