Orcas Island and Glass Flower

Last week snow and sleet, this week Sunshine and flowers.  This particular flower is from our last expedition to The Schack Center in Everett where we watched Eight men throw huge pieces of hot glass to rocking music played loudly.  The whole scene was lots of fun and it was good practice to sketch quick motions of the ever moving men.
This week we traveled with the Anacortes Sketchers to Orcas Island where we settled in around the Orcas Hotel and watched the ferry come and go while we recorded our environment with paper, pen and paint.  It was a long, but fun day traveling on my favorite Ferry route, eating and drinking with friends and even the crazy last minute visit to the new Yogurt shop in Oak Harbor.

Graceful Madrona and Orcas Hotel
