ASk at Tri Dee Art Supply in Mt. Vernon

The back door at Tri Dee and the mural.
There's always such a positive, welcoming environment when I go to Tri Dee Art Supply in Mt. Vernon.You can tell it's going to be creative, fun and exciting, just by the way it looks on the outside!
The back wall has a huge mural that says, "Make Art Not War". It consists of 139 pieces made by members of the community, from the owner's daughter to well known artists.

Thank you, Summer, and the rest of the crew at Tri Dee for making us welcome today and for the lovely gift of the Palomino Blackwing 602 pencils! They are fabulous!
Only three of us (Anne, Michele, Sandy) made it back inside the store for a photo on the steps with our sketches.

It was such a lovely day, sunny and in the 60's. What a treat for February! So although our sketch meet up was planned so that we could shelter from winter inside, many of us just had to go outside and take advantage of the early spring weather. Some sketched around the block, others joined up way down by the river. It was hard to keep track of where anyone was at any part of the afternoon. I'm looking forward to seeing their sketches as they post them on the Anacortes Sketchers Blog in the next few days! So much to write in my sketch journal, so I'll post my sketches from the day tomorrow!
