I did this little sketch at the luncheon for the King George Art Show judge on Saturday. I couldn't resist the little red bistro set in the dappled shade of the big hickory trees. Can't you just feel that breeze?

I also just got my copy of The Art of Urban Sketching and I felt like someone had handed me a double-layer box of chocolates with no calories! I started devouring each page. This and all the other online sketching groups makes me feel like I'm part of something big/universal. Just about to a one, the artists talked about all the same things that I feel when I'm sketching--the way you lose yourself in the drawing, how therapeutic it is, how much fun it is to have people stop by to chat, and the way sketches can bring back so many more memories than just a photo does.
