A Day of Sketching in Edison

The Langley Sketchers drove up the up and off the Island today to meet up with Missy and the Anacortes Sketchers for a day filled with art, good food and friends. We met in the tiny town of Edison, where is air is filled with the wonderful smell of fresh baked bread. The open door of "TWEETS" restaurant was filled with all sorts of signs of the season - apples, pumpkins, Indian corn - and the most delicious scents of yummy food being prepared wafted out to the chair where I sat and sketched. 

Out behind "Slough Foods" a patio opens up and chairs and tables are set out right down to the water's edge. As we sketched the sun dipped lower and lower into the sky until it turned the still waters of the slough metallic silver, and the reeds along the shore, golden. And through the tall grass I spied a tiny house, sitting on the edge of the still waters.

It was a great day!


  1. It is always a pleasure to see your sketches on the blog. I especially love the colorful one of Tweets, my new favorite restaurant!

  2. Oh Judi, I LOVE the sketch of Tweets and love the addition of the map. Wonderful, wonderful!!!
