Human Beings And How They Spend Their Time, Helping by Joan Tavolott

The other day while I was driving I passed so many school crossing guards that I decided I had to stop and be a stalker and sketch. This one was in Sayville. For some reason this crossing guard wasn't wearing her hat...maybe it was still in her car. I hope she keeps everyone safe.

  5. I like the face having just the sunglasses, and yet I 'see' a face there when I look at it. Great sketch. Our school "lollipop" ladies or men (called for the shape of their stop sign) wear fluorescent orange. What a responsibility the job is, so it's nice to have her recorded in history.

    1. Thanks, Jez. I sort of overworked this and lost the brilliant yellow-green color of her vest. I'll have to do another one.

  6. She looks strong enough to hold back traffic allowing all the kidlets cross safely. You are great in your ideas of where to park and draw, Joan! I admire that.

  7. I love that you did this, and the scene you've created. She does look strong and tall! I like the contrast with the slender signpost next to her.

  8. Thanks, Margaret! I was hoping for a few kiddies for her to cross, but I was there a bit too early.
