We’ve been working to the point where I’ve had little time to paint or
even sketch, however, we’ve been in a place I wanted to sketch:
we’ve been repairing historic shellac on the wainscot of two offices in the Legislative Building in the Washington State Capitol complex.
Mitchell’s ladder was blocking the
wainscoting I needed to repair;
I took advantage and sketched him on the ladder.
I took images in order to add
watercolor back in the studio; I didn’t dare attempt watercolors in the Senate area
The details in the doors, ceilings
and lamps are amazing.
I’ve not seen such a beautiful building in a long time. Graceful and tasteful, just enough glitz!
Mitchell also caught me working
in the senator’s office.
