Ashland Sketch

This is one of the first sketches I did when I started this sketchaploosa and haven't stopped! I posted it before, but it was too small to see. It is on sketch paper with a really light wash- since the paper wasn't made for water! Don't laugh, I was new and didn't know!

The sketch is my wonky intrepetation of a little restaurant in Main Street in Ashland where I went with my Berkeley Bad Girls Book Club in October. Martha sketched it, too. If you want to take another look at hers, it is here...

Fun to see how different the two sketches are! I love revisiting sketches even more than photos. What vivid memories they bring!

Katie's Art

My 12 year old niece did a montage of my blog and gave it to me yesterday! I LOVE drawing and painting with Katie. She taught me how to use my watercolor pencils and next I hope she will help me with oil pastels. How lucky am I to have such a talented artist in my midst?!

Lil Girl

So, I sketched our lil girl with a dull pencil and no eraser...and this is actually what she looks like.

She has Feline Luekemia and we are happy to have her while we can!
