Sunday.....in the Neighborhood

We went for a walk in the neighborhood today.  It was around a three mile round trip. I took my REI satchel with drawing materials. We walked through Mt. Tabor park and over to the Albina Coffee Shop on Hawthorne.  I did one sketch there with the elegant writer pen. We stopped at a couple Mt. Tabor Art Walk spots.  I met Mila Raphael,  Kim Lakin and Chris Keylock Williams. It was particular fun to visit with Chris' husband Jim on his front walk (photos below). Well, that's my Sunday...about an 8 on the art-y scale. What about you...? Good day?

I'm not a drama queen, but I do love a good spotlight, dahlink.

That swath of yellow is so eyecatching, beautiful!

Your painting is lovely. Tranquil, just like Sunday. From the photos though Portland looks like a dominantly watercolor town--was that the coffee shop? I liked the goose painting, nice composition. Also the fractured floral upstairs. Good way to spend a Sunday--or any day for that matter.

It sounds like you had a wonderful Sunday. I took classes with Chris years and years ago. She is really good at what she does. I think she does this open studio etc. every year or so. I, on the other hand, did nothing but lay around on the couch watching movies all day. What a waste!

Looks like you had a glorious Sunday

Hi Celeste, Glad you had a wonderful day on Sunday in Oregon. I really enjoy viewing all your beautiful art projects, especially when you draw roses. I love Oregon. In 1981 I took a vacation on the Pacific Coast to Oregon, went camping. My favorite part of Oregon is the beautiful rose garden in Portland. Look forward to your beautiful art work, especially since I live in the desert now and I really miss all my botanical and arboretum gardens and rose gardens in California.
Kindest regards,

I really enjoyed reading about your Sunday. The "husband" name tag made me smile!
