Washington DC last week...

Last week I was in Washington DC for an interview, as I was a finalist for an award called the Gabriel Prize. Tuesday morning I went out to sketch in the freezing cold and pouring rain, then took the sketches into the interview the next day.  These are 3 of the 6 sketches...

The next day, I found out I was indeed awarded this amazing fellowship.  I will be spending 3 months in France, drawing and painting architecture every day!  My study will take me to the gardens, buildings and interiors at Versailles, Vaux-le-Vicomte and Fontainebleau. 

(I will also hop over to Italy to lead a sketching workshop in Civita di Bagnoregio in early July.) 

I am so honored and grateful, excited beyond words at these opportunities.  

I hope to join the Paris Urban Sketchers.

Looks like it's finally time to get a blog started...
