The Brown Lantern and Keystone Building



ASk met at the Keystone Building. It is a fabulous 3-story spot with interesting architecture. I decided to sketch the plant in front of me. We also met at The Brown Lantern Pub. Jane and I shared her favorite sweet potato fries.~ Missy Walsh-Smith

Rose Hips


Judy Cole sketched these beautiful rose hips at Cap Sante when we met there in September. It sure makes a great holiday card!! I love the red against the green!

Holiday Party at Aleli's



We had a fun holiday party with our WISk friends from Whidbey Island joining us. Here's my attempt at sketching one of Aleli's beautiful red horse statues. It is made of cinnabar and decorated with stones. The other is a 17th century Thai Buddha. Her house is full of very cool things to sketch. I hope we can meet there again soon!

Guemes Collage


I spent a couple of days this Thanksgiving weekend painting on Guemes with friends Jodi and Robin from Seattle. We got in some great island walks, met Janice at the community center for the holiday bazaar, and painted until the wee hours.
