Palma Chemists

Here's a sketch of a familiar corner on 7th Avenue in Park Slope. It is the entrance to Palma Chemists drugstore on the corner of 7th Avenue and Garfield Place. I enjoyed the nostalgia of the signage and the cantilevered 3-story bay window, with the brilliant blue September sky reflecting in the windows. The steeple to the old First Reformed Church is visible in the distance. Freehand ink and watercolor on location.

Prints of this piece are available in my ETSY shop. I also plan to make greeting cards of most of the watercolor pieces I've been doing recently, which will be on the shop too as they are ready.


  1. I'm an artist with a card line for women (my fun blog is if you want to see who I am). I came across your lovely blog quite by accident just now and it is SO lovely! Your illustrations are fabulous and I just had to leave a comment!

  2. Thanks so much Sandy! I'm flattered! And your blog is adorable. Be sure to stop back, I am completely addicted to sketching.
