The Pump Café, Springfield, OR
The problem with sketching in a restaurant is that the still life keeps disappearing! Sketchers kept appearing, however, to our delight.
We started the Tuesday morning gathering with Jane and Erik. Bev & Hugh showed up, followed by Judith, Barb So, Penny & Tricia. Then Barb Sh came with her sister JoAnne from Albequerque.
At the other end of the table, Phyllis and Ken had squeezed in.
Hugh was the one who said “Don’t move the toast!” Oops. Sorry.
Jane was the one who moved the toast – how rude!
Bev was the model of restraint, saving her fruit for her sketch.
Barb So not only saved her scone, she also shared it with Ken!
Barb Sh deviated from the norm finishing a sketch she had done of her daughter, but her sister JoAnne dutifully sketched her breakfast.
Tricia and Judith were mesmerized by the decorations on the walls of the restaurant – old license plates, signs, and even saws!
Erik & Ken are old buddies, but that doesn’t stop them from sketching – here’s Ken sketching his morning treat before he eats it!
Erik, a more prosaic fellow, ate his breakfast long ago and saved his sketching for the pile of cream containers in the bowl.
Hey, that spot of blue is the same color as Hugh’s shirt!
Meanwhile, Phyllis was quietly beginning a portrait of Hugh.
Oh! There’s Penelope! When did she sneak in? Despite the sketch challenges, we all enjoyed the wonderful food at The Pump Café, the great coffee and service, and the chance to sketch together again.
