Another outing with the sketch group - and we came to this fine deli and restaurant. Sonia and I arrived early so we both ordered something to eat before "going into the zone."

I spent the day at the Berkeley Marina with my buddies from the SF Sketchers group. It was a nice day to sketch; I dedicated the day to my mom who died four years ago today. She loved sunny weather.

I spent all day on Saturday, Aug. 31 in San Francisco (pier 27/29) participating in an Art in the Park even put on by the America's Cup folks. There were a few races going on, the best place to view the action, however was in front of one of the giant video screens in the viewing area. Viewers could stretch out on bean bag chairs or on the grass. It was a beautiful day, somewhat breezy but I forgot to get cold because I was so busy sketching and painting.

What a blast - sketchers from San Jose, Chico, San Francisco, Oakland, Los Angeles - and a few from out of state - came to the sketchcrawl organized by my sketchgroup the San Francisco Bay Area chapter of the Urban Sketchers movement.

Last week I continued my "escape from my comfort zone" quite literally. I went to Washington state to attend an art workshop put on by the Urban Sketchers, May 17-19. And I decided to take up an offer by a former boss, Dan Morris, and pay him and his wife, Amy, a visit. They live in Anacortes, way up north. How far up north? Well I could see Canada from their house! OK, I exaggerate bit but not by much. It is beautiful country, islands everywhere. Oh, and green, very green! I got the itch to sketch and knew right off that I could not come close to capturing imagines of this wonderfully scenic part of the world. But I tried anyway. Amy took me to LaConner for lunch one day. We sat at a table overlooking a river or lake.

|Music was the prevalent theme for these two sketches. The second photo is what came out an outing with my sketching group on March 26. Loved the ambiance of the venue. The first photo was a solo adventure. I went to Hayward for the 19th Ukulele Festival on April 7 and had a blast.|

What a blast! Food trucks, tables and benches, a little sunshine. The wonderful aromas from the barbecue truck, Mexican food, waffle truck - didn't buy anything there but it sure did smell good. Oh yeah, I did do a little sketching. Here are some folks at the slider truck.
