Tomatoes, Tractors, Kids of Both Kinds and More

Lone Pine Farms, Junction City, OR

      Another produce outlet, along with goats and a kindergarten field trip. Yes, we had a lot to choose from for sketching!

     One of the highlights of our time together is sharing and learning from one another. We really cherish those times!

        Satoko is looking at the booklet of sketches Barb Sh put together after her recent cruise, and Barb Sh is adding more sketches.

       Satoko took the landscape view of Lone Pine Farms – so much to see.

     Marsha had a different angle on the nearer landscape, including the table in front of her! I think she’s going to add color, so check back!

     Barb So did a second sketch of the elephant planter from Cathy’s, then did today’s sketch on a pre-stamped/spattered page – perfect to hint at the windy day blowing dust and pollen around!

     Penny M finished her bird watercolor sketch before she turned to  the kindergarten kids’ scavenger hunt by the goats & the tractor.

      Bev sketched the lily pond, Daisy some treats just purchased, and Jane some produce from the market. What wonderful items!

      Marnie did an outstanding job of sketching the cluster of tomatoes.

     Lealan got to sample a bakery item from the store (yum!), while her friend Penny J got started on the farm scene in front of her.

     Then Lealan turned around to sketch the kindergarten kids and their chaperones eating lunch before their scavenger hunt. Fun for all!

Sketching at the Farm

Thistledown Farm, Junction City, OR

Behind the produce building, there is a wonderful courtyard, with hot houses to the left, and farm animals across the covered bridge.

       Marsha and Lealan, Bev, and Ken – lots to sketch, oh boy!

      Ken was sketching the covered bridge, then got into the poppies.

        Barb Sh was eager to share her sketches from a recent river trip with her sister (also a sketcher) in Europe – what an adventure!

        Marsha loved doing the poppies, enjoying the wonderful lines of the flower pods. What a glorious day to be sketching them.

       Bev was sorry she didn’t have her watercolors, but she made the markers work, and even used chalks in her last sketch! Way to go.

      Speaking of markers, Lealan said she thinks she’s getting the hang of them, and looking at this, I’d certainly agree with her!

      Jane said she was really feeling scattered, but she did a bunch of little sketches, using the last one for her daily gratitude sketch.

       Daisy found interesting things to draw inside the hot houses, but ended up in the courtyard with…the poppies, of course!


Meanwhile, Erik was recapturing a memory he had of the sun in the morning mist – “Does it work?”, he said. Wow, does it ever!
