 What a beautiful day to sketch at Bayview Farm and Garden!  Sun shining, friends dropping by to say hello, chairs to sit in and view the garden.  What more could we ask for.  Hmm, how about a beer & delicious meatballs during Happy Hour at the Bayview Brew Pub!

Bayview Farm and Garden

Had the hardest time finding JUST the right spot to Sketch the newly remodeled and expanded Bayview Farm and Garden. Finally settled into my chair in the shade in front of the Flower House Cafe, with a mug of chai tea, facing the main entrance of the Garden Store. I'll have to come back to sketch flowers - there were so many! After sketching we gathered at the Taproom Brew Pub for refreshments - Ginger Hard Cider and a plate of crab cakes. Yep. A fine day, indeed, in a very fine location.

Bayview Farm & Garden

Bayview Farm and Garden is doing a beautiful remodel and we got to go explore it today.  Wonderful weather ... lots of folks checking out the Spring plants and the new huge garden shop.  I began sketching and somehow got inspired to paint loose and wet.   This young lady was using her Mac, enjoying a cup of Jo and I captured her essence loosely.  Fun!

Sketching at Casey's Crafts

April Fool's Day for the Sketchers group, but without any pranks. In fact, just great sketching in Casey's Crafts store at the invitation of owner Laurie Davenport. Easy sketching, as everywhere we looked there were beautiful and clever spring displays from which to choose. Here is mine, and all the rest, crazy Laurie getting the best photo angle, and a shot of all the April Fools!
