Wickliffe Church

I took advantage of the gorgeous weather on Mothers Day to visit a mostly inactive church in Berryville: Wickliffe Church.

Pilot Metropolitan

My friend Angela gave me a Pilot Metropolitan fountain pen. And I love it, even if I cannot get within three feet of it without getting ink all over myself. One night I decided to play with it for a while by drawing assorting pictures of my cat, Hook.

May 34th

This is what happens when you forget the month has changed until you’ve already written the last one. So you go for technically correct which, as we all know, is the best kind of correct.

George Washington Birthplace National Monument

The weather was lovely at George Washington Birthplace National Monument. The house on the grounds was inspired by architecture of the time period (in other words, based on nothing in particular). The foundation of the real house was found about 100 feet away. Still, I enjoyed sketching one of the few houses George Washington never slept in.

Motorcycle

This is what happens when you don’t plan your space well enough. As I sat outside Union Market waiting for my husband who was at a Nintendo Switch demo, I drew this lovely motorcycle in front of me. When I was nearly finished, a family sat down at my table, one of them directly in between me and what I was drawing. Good thing I was almost finished.

EPCOT

EPCOT is lovely at night. Hard to draw in the dark (I didn’t have a light with me), but I think it turned out all right.

Shoes

While we waited for Illuminations to begin, I drew the only thing in view on that dark night: my shoes.

Grandma Moses

It bothers me a little bit that Grandma Moses is known mostly for being old, but her paintings are nice.

Berthe Morisot

There weren’t many female Impressionists, so Morisot’s work was new to me, but I like it.

Sketchbook Peek: Oxon Hill Farm

It was a windy and chilly April day that I visited Oxon Hill Farm, far too windy to draw the cows in the field as I’d wanted. So I took shelter in this little building and drew the old tractor they had on display along with other ancient technology.
