Postcards arrived

On 1 May, I attended a Postcard Art event to kick off Historic Tacoma month.   I produced 10 postcards of prints of my sketches of historic areas of Tacoma.  I now realize it would have been good if I’d taken a photo of the group.  Remember that for next year!  We posted them all up so everyone could take a look:

As a result, I received 10 postcards from others.  I’d nearly forgotten about them.  These were all postmarked 1 June and were in my PO box today.

Of the 10, 6 are from people I sketch with in Urban Sketchers Tacoma!

    Cool project!

  2. What a great sharing of both the familiar and the personal. Tacoma is one of those cities where there’s sublime amidst the rough–it is no wonder Chihuly chose this waterfronted workers’ metropolis to work his magic. There’s something about the making of glass which combines the industrial with the exquisite, a kind of visual metaphor of Tacoma.

      Tacoma is a wonderful place to sketch. So many old buildings and so much history. Urban Sketchers Tacoma is hosting a regional (Pacific NW) sketch outing 11 July. And then next year, we hope to be the host for the Westcoast Sketch crawl!
