Chivo captured our hearts when we sketched at Kim's place a couple of weeks ago. Believe it or not this big (110 lb.) sweet, gentle, golden boy is half wolf - on his mother's side. His daddy hasn't come forward to claim paternity. This is the only dog I've ever sketched that did not get up and leave upon discovering I was staring at him. He is a much loved member of the family, protector of the flock and a very special canine.
Chivo is too big for one page or even one sketchbook.

Aboard the Sophia

We had a fantastic trip sailing to LaConner on the Sophia. Thank you so very much to Paula and Jim for a perfect day. Scenery from the boat was so AWEsome that we could't settle down and sketch! Once we docked, we visited the quilting museum, ate lunch on the patio at The Pub, then sketched the quaint little town. Beautiful weather, warm people....what more could you ask for?
