Tea and Sketches at One Spirit Garden

It was the perfect late summer day, between 11am and 1:30pm at One Spirit Garden on Whidbey Island. I am grateful to Whidbey Island sketchers for including me at their weekly meet up for sketching, chatting, laughing and tea. There were 19 of us. Some found a spot in the garden or at a table on the covered deck, while Glo, the owner and her assistant treated us to a fabulous afternoon of pampering. You two outdid yourselves! Thank you!

I kept adding sketches as the dishes kept coming.
Sketching during a tea party is an artist's version of time lapse, uh, sketching!
Then, before catching the ferry home, I dashed over to see the new exhibit at the Bayview Cash Store's farm show, "When Your Plow is a Paintbrush II" opening that evening, Friday, Sept. 5.
How great! A farm themed show mounted on chicken wire!
One more detour to The Goose to pick up the last issue of Whidbey Life Magazine in which there's a wonderful article about the Whidbey Island Sketchers and the current show. (Are you women going to tell your mothers that you made it to the centerfold at last?)

Incidentally, I made some origami business card holders to give to fellow sketchers that day, but I ran out! For those who wanted instructions on how to make them,  please follow this link.
