My First Mini-Sketch Crawl
After learning that Laura lived nearby (YEAH!!) we arranged to meet at the JC Raulston Arboretum today for a mini-sketch crawl (MY VERY FIRST!). What a DELIGHT to finally meet the beautiful woman behind the artwork I drool over!
We found a quiet spot and sketched while we chatted. Laura's painting of the area is INCREDIBLE! The sketch I did of ONE of the twisted wisterias looks as though it were on a diet! The tree I sketched (hackberry with partial vine covering a bit of branching) is the large one toward the background of Laura's row of wisterias.
I don't remember spending a more enjoyable afternoon! THANK YOU, Laura!
