Just got back from a week’s vacation in Oregon with my husband. Not the sit on a beach type. Rather a full on let’s see how much we can see and do and most importantly eat. The last part, the eating, afforded not only the chance to taste gastronomic excellence (in Portland) but also to be stationary for a few minutes so that I could do some messy quick sketches in my little 7 X 5″ “Nature Sketch” purse sized sketchbook, which is now wonderfully raggedy and food stained – as it should be.
Starting out with the airport. . .
Hipsters, rapsters and us oldsters at the Wandering Goat, a coffee/beer bar in Eugene where our son Ben takes us. Not sure whether it makes me feel younger, hanging with the 20 somethings. No, probably more like older. I try not to stare at the “colorful” hipsters, but set to work sketching Ben in the dim light over a page I’ve prepared with some stenciled color earlier.
More of the Oregon trip sketches tomorrow.
