ASk Maiden Voyage Into Blogosphere

A small band of sketchers in Anacortes, Washington have been meeting and sketching for only a short time, but have a great deal of enthusiasm and energy .  We want you to know about us!  Several of us have sketched with other groups, on our own and now feel that it's a good idea to become a member of the huge virtual community of sketchers worldwide.  Oh, truly, we are humble and intend to share what we do, but also intend to learn from others in the blogosphere.  At this point, although we have much to learn, we are up and running, sketch books, paintboxes and pens in hand.  Please start following us, stop by occasionally, and look for us visiting your sites.

For a start, Missy Walsh-Smith is sharing a few sketches done recently at local pub Brown Lantern, Gere-a-Deli, an active local lunch place, and today, at the Anacortes Public Library.  (Dee Doyle)
