Sketching the ABUNDANT EARTH FIBER MILL in Clinton

Whidbey Island Sketchers were invited to the ABUNDANT EARTH FIBER MILL in Clinton to sketch the looms, spinning wheels, and hanks and hanks of soft, colorful wools. I find it amazing that in the over seven years I have lived here I never know this place existed. I guess it shows my lack of spinning, weaving, knitting and sheepies knowledge.

The Clay House

I totally agree with Judi ... the Clay house was a wonder of visions.  The tough part was figuring out what to sketch.   Well, I focused on this art piece ... first, I sketched the pooch to start a buddy art for Emily.  Then, I did the whole thing.  We had a wonderful time, a great group showed up, we heard reports of Mary & the gang's visit to Emily ...

Another FABULOUS sketching day!

Once again, being a member of the Whidbey Island Sketchers tribe afforded me an opportunity to be a guest in another absolutely STUNNING Island home I probably would otherwise never have had. We were invited to sketch in the incredible Clay home in Greenbank, a feast for the eyes in every direction. The high-bank scenery view over the inlet, the gardens, the architecture and furnishings - there was so much to see that I almost couldn’t settle on one thing. But I found a comfortable spot to sit, and bingo! - right in from of me was this lovely old clock, tucked in a corner of the stone fireplace. "Cogsworth the Clock"! Too good to pass up!
