All day sketching

Yesterday we celebrated our Whidbey Island Sketchers, fearless leader Sue Van Etten's birthday, with an all day sketching marathon.  We started at Mukilteo Coffee House's Cabuni Cafe with breakfast and moved on to Natalie Olsens, fine establishment, where she provided more food & wine while we sketched and discussed the upcoming trip to Winthrop (I can't wait to see the fall colors from this trip).  The final stop was the Holmes Harbor Rod and Gun Club to sketch the beautiful heads on the wall.  It was a long, but fun day!  Why is it so tiring sitting around all day painting?
Cabuni Cafe colorful food bar!
The best part of my day was acting like a traffic cop at Mukilteo Coffee, shooing drivers away from parking in front of the pumpkins, so I could finish painting them.  Gary came out and said "Oh its Pat", no problem!  Nice to see you again old pal!
