At Barbara Sommers’ in Eugene, OR
Barbara Sommers invited us to her home, and quite a crowd showed up! Sandy, Jan, Barb Sommers, Penelope, Barb Shirk, Jane, Erik; Ken, Barb Sommers & Barb Aten. She supplied home cooked biscotti!
Barb Sommers showed us her version of the clothing store with ribbons from last week (remember Tricia’s?), and Penelope showed us her journal entries from her gardening & doctor visit last week.
Barb Shirk had finished the lawn ornament she started, and then began to sketch from a photo of a wonderful snail – wonder how this will all work together…keep coming back to see!
Erik had been talking about putting together the perfect combination of spring blooming plants in an imaginary yard:
Jan was looking out the dining room window, and slowly the arbor-vitae appeared, and then the cars (which she said became Fiats!).
Jane was enchanted with the images on her coffee cup – done first with pen, then markers, then water soluble ink.
Sandy started sketching Ken’s biscotti, then his sketch of the same.So then Ken drew a replica of his sketch in the space she’d blocked out for it on her page.
Now, how to draw the hand drawing while holding the pen… Ta dah!
Penelope drew both Ken & Sandy drawing the biscotti. Barb Sommers drew not only the biscotti, but also the art tools.
Meanwhile, folks couldn’t resist trying the various white pens Jane had brought – Penelope tried the Signo Uni-Ball, Barb Shirk the Sharpie oil based, and Jan the Sharpie water based. Have to wait to see the results of using the Faber-Castell Pitt white pen, & the Bistro Chalk Marker by Marvy Uchida in our unending search for the perfect white for the perfect occasion.
