Secret Cultus Bay Nursery Garden

The sunshine on Friday surprised us. But we reveled in it! We were headed outdoors to the Cultus Bay nursery, and the sunshine and clear sky was very welcome. Going into the nursery is like a trip into a Secret Garden of your fantasy. Tucked into every corner is something wonderful. My favorite view is the old farmhouse just outside, glimped through an arbor covered with flowering vines. Got there early, staked out my spot, no chit-chat, focused effort. Finished a Tommy Kane-style "Long Drawing" in 2 1/2 hours! Whew!
This journal page is a little after the fact. I try to post these together (since my journal page is usually on on the back of my sketch page), but, since I was down in Tacoma attending the fond farewell party for a beautiful, truly crow-spirited Warrior Woman (who left us all WAY too soon), I am late getting the two together. So anyway, here are the two pages for my day in the Secret Garden.


  1. The sketches are colorful, fun and terrific

      I completely agree.

  2. Had to laugh at myself for initially misunderstanding, "burritos". The sketcher was perfectly correct in the art but here in S. Calif. the word means something totally different. I love this artist and this site. Well done all aroung.

  3. Thought I commented on these before...oh well, they are quite fun and lively and so well done.
