Midsummer Respite

What better place and activity than to spend Midsummer’s Day sketching on Vashon Island at the home of an artist. Darsie invited both Tacoma and Port Townsend Urban Sketchers to his home for the usual Tacoma 3rd Wednesday outing. Unfortunately, the PT sketchers couldn’t make it due to an accident that blocked their route.

Still, there was a good group of sketchers.

I arrived on the island quite early, so I stopped at a pullout on Quartermaster Bay to do a sketch.

There are so many “destinations” on Darsie’s property that it was hard to choose what to sketch. I was thinking of the USk flickr group’s weekly theme when I asked him whether he had anything that had been re-purposed. He pointed to the small building that is now their bedroom. It started life as a shed.
