Buddha Sketching at Aleli's

We had such fun sketching at Aleli's house!  There were buddha's and Santa's galore!  I couldn't scan this entire figure, but here is most of it.  She is a Thai buddha holding a pea for good luck.  The necklace was an added piece by Aleli.

Working With Shapes

I am rusty at painting vehicles, but this truck at Gordon's is so colorful and interesting.  It was a good subject for looking at shapes.

The Maiden of Deception Pass

It was a perfect afternoon at Rosario Beach last Monday.  The fog was lifting, water was clear, and eagles were flying overhead.  This totem tells the story of the friendship between the Samish and the sea.  The sea feeds the people and the people treat the sea with kindness and respect.

Grandview Cemetery

ASk sketched at Grandview Cemetery last Monday.  Jane and Jude drew the small mossy-roofed house.  It took me awhile to get going, but here's what I did.

Jello Mold Farm

Sketching at Jello Mold Farm was delightful.  Dennis and Diane greeted us among rows of blooming dahlias.  They took us on a small tour of their 7-acre flower farm and taught us about the art of raising flowers for wholesale.  We left with bags of freshly-picked plums!

Sunny Afternoon @ Kalena's

Kalena's yard 
 What a great afternoon we had sketching in Kalena's yard!  We decided it was a perfect spot for a sketchers' retreat!  These two sketches go together, but couldn't figure out how to move the bottom one up!     6-17-13
