Samish Island Vignettes


A view of Mt. Baker and Jerlyn sketching in Bonnie's Garden
Today, I spent a wonderful afternoon with the Anacortes sketchers at the home of one of our artists. The summer air was fresh and warm, the garden bountiful and the hospitality warm and welcoming. After roaming the house and garden, I found a shady spot with a view of Mt. Baker. Cloud shadows played across the mountain's shapes, creating a variety of undulating rhythms.

After a meander through the glade with its own pond and tiny island, we came back to the table where fresh flowers and chocolate tempted us. Everywhere you looked, there was another path, a grouping of potted blossoms or a place to sit and muse.

I spent a lot of time today just soaking it all in. I think you would have, too, if you had been there.

Sketching at The Brown


The Brown continues to be my favorite place for sketching people.  They seem to stay long enough at the bar and I don't have to sketch their faces!!  It was a fun, rainy afternoon!
