New York Sketches and Moomintrolls…

Speaking of Moomintrolls and keeping with the theme from my last post…
… here is a quote by the author of the Moomintroll books:

“One summer morning at sunrise a long time ago
I met a little girl with a book under her arm.
I asked her why she was out so early and
she answered that there were too many books and
far too little time. And there she was absolutely right.”
― Tove Jansson

Brunch at the Scandinavia House in NYC…no sketchbook required!

Tables with brown paper…surrounded by grandparents…toddlers…even 20 somethings out on the town…
