Yesterday's caricature adventures started off with a company picnic held in a park next to an office/industrial complex. The employees simply walked out of their work at lunchtime and across the lane to enjoy a catered barbecue, all sorts of games culminating in a softball match, and my caricatures, being drawn under a shade tree. The sky threatened at first, then cleared up.
The interesting aspect of the location of this event speakes loudly about the state of the economy in this country. The event contact told me that in a recession ( even though it's not being called that officially) clients might cut back on the scale of events (meaning more close to home, less lavish locations) but even so, party entertainment is what lifts a gathering into a memorable occasion. I hope that holds true...
Here are some faces that passed before my easel!
This last young lady, the only child attending, was there to speak to the employees about the importance of their work..they manufacture diabetes products, and her life is a beneficiary of that...:-)
