Newport and Vermont

My wife and I are just back from a two week trip to the east coast. We were in Annapolis, MD for the in-water sail show, Newport for the sights, and Vermont so I could get new ski boots. I didn't have much time to sketch but did manage to put these two pieces down on paper.

The first sketch is of the basement window that was in the breakfast area of the Yankee Peddler inn where we stayed in Newport. The inn was built in the 1830s and is reported to be ghostly encounters however. The basement walls are stone and are quite thick.

The second sketch was done on a rainy afternoon in Rutland, Vermont. While my wife was out in the rain shopping I stayed in the car and sketched this old bank building. Post the shopping trip we went back to the inn where we stayed and enjoyed fresh baked chocolate chip cookies.


  1. Looks marvelous, Dave, so glad you shared your trip with us!

  2. I really enjoyed the sketches, Dave. Looks like it was probably a great trip.

  3. The shadow on the stone in the top drawing is especially wonderful, Dave.

  4. Love the light coming in that window.
