Two Tuesdays at the 5th Street Market

The Top Drawers met at the 5th Street Market for two Tuesdays. The first time we were inside because of smoky conditions and the threat of rain. Hugh and Sandy Larkin, who live in Boise now, were able to join us. They are such a delight.

The second Tuesday at the 5th Street Market, we moved outside. It was sunny and Ken joined us. Such a treat.

Gordon Alley (again) & Zoom #90

Zoom #90! Some of us have other things going on, but the weekly sharing of the week’s sketches is not to be missed.

Gordon Alley & Zoom #89

On Tuesday, the Top Drawers met at Gordon Alley. We enjoyed the shade and the amenities: lattes, ice cream, and Euphoria Chocolate!

Zoom #89!

Sketching depicts our daily lives, from Bev’s cat to Marsha waiting in line at the pharmacy.

Maude Kerns Art Center & Zoom #88

The Top Drawers met at the Maude Kerns Art Center. Thank you to the staff for their hospitality, and to Daisy for making the arrangement. Thank you to Peggy Stuart for taking lots of pictures! We had a good turnout with lots to contemplate.

Sharing the week’s work keeps us on our toes.

Norma Pfeiffer Park & Zoom #86

The gathering at Norma Pfeiffer Park in Coburg was a little chilly to start with, but ended with good results.

Zoom #86: Getting together every week keeps us accountable. How embarrassing would it be to have nothing to show on Friday?!

Sandy in Boise.

Cortesia (again) and Zoom #85

Another lovely time sketching at Cortesia. Bleu the dog was there so Monty the cat was nowhere to be seen.


Zoom #85 on Friday

Sharing the week’s work is one of the best times of the week. It also keeps us accountable.

Tricia beating the heat.

Cortesia and Zoom #84

Tuesday Top Drawers sketching was in the woods and gardens at Cortesia.

Gathering the people and the sketches.

Zoom Session # 84

We gather on Zoom to share the week’s work. This week, Hugh and Sandy popped in to say hi. They have been sharing their travel sketches on FaceBook.

PatR: Italy trip
Sandy: Plein Air in Idaho

Oakway and Zoom #83

It was Oakway again this week for in-person sketching.

Seeking shade.

Our 83rd Zoom was full of talk of the Drawing Marathon, the Hearings, and the difference between water soluble and permanent ink pens.
