These two very quick sketches were done while watching a glassmaking demo at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma:
Schools were shut for a week here in San Jose, so we grabbed the opportunity to head out for a break: San Juan Islands and Seattle is where we were headed.
There is something magical about places on the waterfront.
SAM( Seattle Art Museum), and a view of the cranes on the waterfront, Seattle:
And I guess you just can't do a "Seattle" posting without a Pike Place Sketch I could have sketched here all week, but I only got one really quick sketch in... I had my 3 and 5 year old with me , and every time I looked down at my sketchpad, they would have wondered off and gotten lost in the crowds! I sketched this balloon man because they were fascinated by him and stayed put!

Sorry I've been away. I've been sketching though. Here is from the recent sketchcrawl in SF. Riders on BART and muni, dogs and sketchers in Duboce Park.
The Sunset Chinese Folk Dance Group near Duboce Park and the view from in front of Blue Bottle Coffee.
The view from Duboce and Buena Vista.
Table decoration from a Thai restaurant south of Market, more riders on BART.

I'm a wimp when it comes to the cold, so at the first sign of fall, I head indoors to sketch. One of my favorite haunts: Los Gatos Coffee brewing Company. It's always full, often a challenge to find a seat, but that just means lots of people to draw. Notice how everyone of this little group of people I sketched is on a device: a laptop, an iphone....

My Sister was in an art store in Marin, California. In conversation with the clerk had mentioned that She had a brother who sketched in San Jose. The Clerk replied with " what's to draw in San Jose??" This little theater was a very risque foreign cinema in the 1960's. It now shows Indian films.
