Friday Sketchers visited another location to celebrate the holiday. Swanson's was beautifully decorated for Christmas.
My first sketch was of a bare tree with glass bird feeders. I thought they looked like Christmas bulbs.
all the chaos of the small children feeding them, the reindeer calmed
down and took a rest. It was a good chance to sketch them.
settled in the warmth of the cafe to talk to Gretchen, visiting
sketcher from Madison, WI. While at the table I sketched the small koi
in the pond next to my table. In the other pond, there were some huge
fish, one was about 2 feet long.
was one of the better turn-outs. We were 13 sketchers but Gretchen,
unfortunately, had to leave early. I forgot to even get a photo of
her. We used the class room, set up for Santa photos, to show our
sketches and take our group photo!
