Kate (me), Ben (visiting from Hong Kong Urban Sketchers), Gwen, PeggyH, Tina, Robin
Hurrah for you! While you were out there sketching I was in Kirkland, teaching the first of my fall classes. I was torn. Although I love my students, I really missed being out there sketching with you all. I'll catch up with you sometimes on the weekends.ReplyDelete
