Sketching at Diane & Bob's

Limes, lemons & tea for us

Old trunk and beautiful wall cabinet and two of Dianes oil paintings
This Wednesday a few of us met at Diane & Bob B's home to sketch some of their incredible collectibles.  This ambitious couple built a home around items they have collected over the years.  The newel posts purchased at an Estate sale support the huge marble counter and the railing above the living room.  The huge black panel in the kitchen from an old stove and beautiful cupboards and artifacts everywhere.  It looks like Judy did a painting of the pups, two cute soft brown poodles.  Bob built Diane a small studio just off the back deck with all the crate wood lining the inside walls and a view of Holmes Harbor.  There is so much more, but you will just have to come another time and see or pay to go on a Home or Kitchen tour. This home is unique beyond words.  Thank you Diane & Bob.
 Here are my two small offerings.  Pat


  1. Wonderful sketches, Pat. You really capture the atmosphere of a warm, inviting home. I really regret missing this one. I'm dying to see it after reading your description. Hope the group can go back again in a few months.

  2. Don't they have the most AMAZING PLACE??? I am still going to sketch the all of the little outbuildings using the photos I took. Your "sketch" (painting) of the trunk and her pear painting is just beautiful (OF COURSE!) Lovely.
