Worldwide Sketchcrawl

I celebrated the absence of snow with a sketching opportunity.

1930 Pontiac Sedan

This is my Father in Law Ed Bruno at the age of 19 in front of his 17 year brothers car in Seaside, Or.
Richard, his brother, modified the car by hacksawing off the roof.  This made the car a french cabriolet.
There was no division window between the driver's seat and passenger cabin.
The brothers road tripped from Seattle to Seaside doing battle against the elements and Logging trucks.

Luncheon at Greta's

Greta loves to entertain and she's in her mid 90's and a real dynamo.

Snowy Magnolia Hill

It snowed today.  Lori and I ventured out in it. This is a view looking west on Magnolia Hill.

SAAM Sketchcrawl Jan 2012

There was a chance of snow expected but I decided to forge ahead and attend the gathering of sketchers.
A trace amount was on the ground when I arrived and I didn't expect to see about 4" on my car!
I drove a little while and decided it was best to chain up and walk down the hill.

Here are my sketches.
