Fast Forward then Back

I see it has been a while since I updated the blog. The happy news is that I have been drawing like crazy, taking a couple of online courses and feeling blessed by lots of travel. It really is true that new environments are extremely visually stimulating. I always love to draw when I travel.

So since the last posts from Japan, I've been to Korea and China. Today, I attended a Jane Walk, hosted by Emma Fitzgerald. She is an architect and artist who has just published a book of her sketches detailing her discovery of Halifax as her home. She is originally from West Vancouver. Her comments about really understanding a place through sketching and painting plus the discussion with other Urban Sketchers today refreshed my desire to rediscover my own city. Today's entry is from Ambleside, West Vancouver.

I've also resolved to post some of the work from the past several months. It is never too late to get a little bit caught up.
