Wednesday at the Fort

Wednesday is my usual volunteer day at Fort Nisqually.  Up until now, I’ve done sewing guild work:  repairs and alterations mostly.   Today I did that for a couple hours and then got dressed in my period clothing to do some sketching an interpreting.

Here is the result:  a 5×7 painting of the laborer’s dwelling.    The original will soon be for sale in the Fort’s shop!

I set up the new box from Dick Blick.  It holds most of my tools well.

    Nice sketch of the fort! Great textures on that fencing and siding. Looks like you have everything you need in that box.
