I started this on a day of talking and talking and a little sketching with an art friend.
We went to the Pittock Mansion to sketch, and they let us largely because they
understood that I knew the rules of a museum and would abide by them.
No watercolors, but a pen and pencil were fine…
Sitting in the West Bedroom on the floor, sketching the loveseat,
look at what my completely reliable Platinum Carbon Pen did!
Leaked in a huge blob! AAACK!
Not that it was the best drawing in the world…
Talking more than drawing, and not paying too much attention, having fun!
I took so many pics, and decided to lead the Virtual Sketchers through Pittock.
Not too enthused by this page, I still have a commitment to it.
Every page in my sketchbooks may not be a masterpiece,
but my commitment is to finishing it and caring about it. At least a little.
I drew a couple of details quickly. Still not great….
“Memory is more indelible than ink.”
Anita Loos, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.
“I think not….”
Me… why I journal!
