Ludwig Bemelmans' MADELINE

 Having fun at the New York Historical Society's MADELINE exhibition:

I organized a visit with my SVA students, followed by a picnic across the street in Central Park. We were a dozen or so.

 "In an old house in Paris
That was covered with vines
Lived twelve little girls
In two straight lines."
 A quote I wrote down from Mr Bemelmans: "I sketch with facility and speed. The drawing has to sit on the paper as if you smacked a spoon of whipped cream on a plate."

The exhibition was an inspiration for us all.
