Pumped up!

The Pump Café, 710 Main St., Springfield, Oregon

We’re always interested in trying a new sketching venue, and when Hugh & Sandy had breakfast at The Pump Café in Springfield, they approached  the owners with the idea of having the sketch group be able to spend some time sketching there some morning.  They said yes, and we were charmed to be in such an interesting warm hearted place. (The food was great, too.)

focused sketchersWe were just a small group, but sure enjoyed being there – Tricia, Sandy, & Erik (who couldn’t resist their eggs on pancakes – YUM).

Tricia-quickTricia started by showing us the sketch she completed the last time we were together, noting the demands of sketching fast when your model is apt to move on!
