I decided it was time for an update. In addition to the new look I plan to add some new content pages. Once I get the appearance established, I’ll start on those pages.

I am sad to reach mile 363 of Oregon’s Pacific Coast Highway. It means my adventure is coming to an end. California is just around the bend and this is my turn around point.

We had three designated drawing sessions, Saturday morning, Saturday afternoon, and Sunday morning. After each session, sketchers came together to show their work. I don’t know if… Continue reading Sketch Crawl!
