Inktober -- favourite café in the MoMA

What I love about this Inktober practice is the ability
to draw what catches my fancy.  I've been looking for
an image of this amazing bouquet for a few days now,
and finally found it.

This was an absolutely striking bouquet of brilliant
pink flowers set against dark green leaves, in a high
white glass vase.  Astoundingly beautiful, and I have
not done it justice.

What I always loved about the photo was the surprisingly
sulky woman in one corner.  I think I've made her a little
less sulky, and seeing it as a drawing, I think it might
make a good painting.  But for now.  A friend of mine
(and I can't remember which one) met the guy who does
these bouquets in the MoMA and the Met in New York
city.  And that friend watched him do a demo, which
I would love to see.  Because some of the many things
that made me fall in love with New York City were
the enormous and elegant flower bouquets in those two
art museums.

Have a loving flowers day.
