I don’t believe I’d spent a day outside for the past three months. It was intoxicating weather yesterday for the first Wander Doodler hike, led by the intrepid Isabelle. Down below the mustard carpeted the manicured vineyards of Napa County while we made our way up over an emerald green carpet to the ridge on the other side of which lay open land and a small reservoir.
In case you’re wondering, the Wander Doodlers (or wandering doodlers) is a new Sierra Club group that will be doing a new sketch/hike on the second Saturday of each month. If you want to participate, contact Isabelle.
The vistas of the valley and beyond to the bay were way too spectacular to make it onto my sketchbook while I sat lazy and contented in the rare February sun, so I picked closer subjects.
CORRECTION! I mixed up the gallery hours for Sebastopol Center for the Arts on one of my recent posts, so I will correct them here: Please note, if you have plans to see the Art Journal show which will be there til March 21:
Gallery hours: Tuesday – Friday, 10am-4pm, Saturday 1-4pm and Closed Sunday and Monday.
