Last month, August 2012, I was incredibly fortunate to spend 11 days in Stockholm, Sweden. My husband was invited to present in Stockholm University, and I tagged along with a goal to sketch. And sketch I did.

Stockholm is one of the most beautiful cities I've even seen. And Gamla Stan - the Old Town - is a mind blowing experience.

Then my luck turned even brighter - I got together with Nina Johansson and we went to sketch the Old Town again. I just couldn't get enough of it. Here's Nina and I sketching in the narrow alley Skeppar Olofs Grand.

Finished with Skeppar Olofs alley Nina and I met with Ed Harker at Stortorget, which means The Big Square. Ed is a sketcher from Bath, England. This outing turned truly international. We sat in a cafe and sketched the old Stockholm. My view was Swedish Academy and Nobel Museum - the very place where they decide who wins Nobel prizes each year since 1901.
