A Sketching Expedition

I told you about the wonderful workshop I had in Waukesha WI, now I want to take a minute to share a few sketches from an experiment I will definitely repeat, my Drawing Expedition 2018.

cool cafe in Waukesha

so nice to stay at Nancy's house and be greeted by her dogs...

I decided, as I was planning details for my workshop, that I would extend my trip further east, visit family and friends and spend time along the way in places I'd never been, drawing in my sketchbook.

It was so fulfilling I won't hesitate to do it again.

I'd never spent time in Michigan and I discovered Marshall, a town you should visit.

Who doesn't want to go to a Magic Museum?

Ashtabula was only a stop on I 90 in Ohio for years, you should see the drawbridge there.

And sometimes a rainy day at a laundromat can enrich your day.

I'm so grateful I have a passion for sketching the things I see as I live this life. It's even better when I can share them with you.


  1. Thanks for sharing your travel adventures. I love your sketches. I would love to be able to draw and sketch like that! Can't wait to see how they might end up in a tapestry!

    1. Thanks Judy, I hope you can feel the enjoyment I get in doing it.
