Cedar Falls, Iowa: Introducing myself

I've been an Urban Sketcher since April 2010. I'm delighted to be part of this Midwest group and be in such good company. I've lived in Cedar Falls, Iowa for 25 years. I travel a lot (especially since I retired from my day job 5 years ago), but my favorite place to draw is my hometown. Here are a few:

  1. Delighted to have you, Marcia! I look forward to seeing Iowa through your eyes...I've been to the Amana Colonies and Des Moines, but that's about it...

    1. I’m excited about sharing in this blog. I’ve met some amazing artists by going to the USK Symposiums and looking at people’s work online. So finding others closer to home who share my passion for sketching is exciting. I do hope that we Midwestern Urban Sketchers might have regional sketch crawls someday. Have you ever thought of that? A weekend perhaps in each others cities? Traveling to Lisbon to sketch alongside of others was incredible, but traveling to Kansas City or Chicago or Cedar Falls could be equally as wonderful. I’m probably getting ahead of things here.....

  2. Marcia, we are talking about meeting in several places in Kansas City, at any rate! The zoo, the Plaza, the City Market, the Nelson Gallery, etc. I don't travel well (old and arthritic!) and we have even OLDER family in Nevada and California that duty causes us to go see, so I can't promise anything myself. It would be fine with me if someone else wanted to arrange things like that in the future! For now, just 2-3 times a year around KC...

    1. If you give me enough prior notice and it's OK to be an interloper from afar, maybe I'll join you for one of your Sketch crawls in KC in the next year or so. I haven't visited Manhattan, KS for 20 years (my place of birth), so I could include that on an itinerary, too. Here in Cedar Falls/Waterloo, I sketch solo. Although, I suppose I could stir up some interest locally, if I were to work at it & then host an Urban Sketcher-Midwest gathering here, assuming this is something our other blog members would be interested in. We'll just have to see how this evolves.
