This peacock has been hanging around our yard for the last month.  It likes to sit next to the concrete base of the old greenhouse, on cold but sunny mornings. Acrylic on paper.

#368 Brief Kitty Pose

There was just enough time to pose, between pouncing on another cat, and asking for treats.

#367 Reader

This woman was scanning a book at the Port Angeles library.  The man in the background had a great hat, but he moved away before I could get very far with a sketch of him.

This man sat down at a nearby table at the Port Angeles library to read a newspaper.  I was able to sketch a few other victims- er, models, too!

#365 Breakfast at Pt Hudson Cafe

My plan was to sketch people, but were there in a lull between customers- so I sketched my plate instead.  Then people started arriving again.  This was the Hudson Hash, made with polenta, smoked salmon, scallions and feta.  R helped with the english muffins!

#361 Smith Rock Study

Inspired by Land Sketch's value studies in ink, I'm doing some small (5" x 7") washes.  This is a scene from Smith Rock in Oregon.  I've struggled with painting it in other media because everything seems to be happening off to the left, but maybe having the high contrast at the top of the rock is helpful.
