Back to the beginning . . .

It was my very first sketch crawl, in October 2007, and the first day sketching with Cathy 'Kate' Johnson. This is the back of the Olde English Garden Shoppe in Excelsior Springs, MO, now closed. Feeling a bit intimidated about sketching with others, I just drew in pencil on-site, erasing often.

Excelsior Springs, Nov. 2007

Later at home, I did this watercolor version. Since then, I'm overcoming my shyness -- now I sketch directly in ink and watercolor any where, any time. Being stretched can be fun.


  1. And I am SO GLAD you came, and're doing great!

  2. Makes me kind of sad that both those lovely little businesses are gone now...

  3. Yes, I'm glad you were able to capture them while they were there. You inspire me with your growing confidence.

  4. Thanks, Kate and Christiana. I miss them and I don't even live there. Both were so charming!
