Another Wonky Week with Lynn and her Art

I continue, as you can see, to draw in public at the local coffee houses and capture people from all over the room ... some even have their head in the clouds!

Some are wheeling and dealing, as others remain oblivious, minding their own business.

Outside the coffee house for a 'one minute dog drawing assignment' in Sketchbook Skool, this pup appeared out of no where!

While still another assignment had me using my imagination to recreate my day using drawings, story and lettering (seen above)

Meanwhile back inside ,real time,, Minnie Mouse showed up on a woman's pajama pants. I am always amazed at what is now "normal outdoor wear!" ...

... While others try to figure out their day!

We hadn't eaten at Tacos Jalisco in a while so it was nice to get back there. Carlos was working so we could catch up on his life!

On yet another day people were working hard at the back wall on colorful laptops!

I love drawing and coloring different clothing! I actually have a sweatshirt-jacket not too unlike that colorful one above.

I like scarves too, just like these guys did.

We had a fun day trip to San Francisco last Monday. This beautiful pelican was happy  to pose.

And I tried my hand at a selfie using my new iPhone. Hey, it worked!!! I'm just like all the other tourists now!

Dear husband semi-agreed to pose for his pic with the Golden Gate in the back ground.

I love going home over this colorful bridge!

We stopped in Sausalito to use the restroom at the Bay Model Center and were amazed there is still a pay phone booth standing!

Oops, a tad out of order, but we stopped at Fort Mason and I went into the new Flax Art Store there!!!
Came out with a bag full of goodies!

And I drew this couple in the warming hut having lunch and planning their day, as we ate our lunch!
*back by the pier.

We are drawing our pets, present and past, over at Paper, Paint, Pencils & Pens, my interactive blog with Ann Hyde from the UK and a wealth of other artists. You are welcome to join us. The links on the name.

Another challenge group I'll involved in is Every Day in February and we are on a virtual travel trip around the world. I had a stop in Canada where I "met up" with my friend Kelly and we talked about our campaigning for  Bernie Sanders! Our Choice for President!

These gals were on break from their job at the coffee house.

This couple was there too and had some phone issues it seemed.

These women sat close, but never really interacted. I am amazing at giving them "other lives".

Brand was another of our dear cats, one we had for fifteen years!!! for PPP&P blog.

And further virtual travel took me to Dominica and past islands I have actually been to years ago!

That's it for this week.
I hope you enjoyed yours.
I wish you a creative week ahead.
I thank you for visiting me here. Remember if you aren't already you can
become a follower of this blog!
And thanks for your comments and they are my encouragement to keep drawing!




  1. Great stuff-I love San Francisco. Haven't been in a while. I understand the west coast has had a very cool winter--and here on the east we've been mostly warm. Have a great weekend! xo

  2. I always enjoy "a week with Lynn". Thanks for sharing Lynn.

  3. Another great week of sketches and fab photos too. Happy PPF

  4. love it all but especially that scribble dog!

  5. You capture these people so perfectly! I loved the comment about the woman in her jammies. I think it's such a fashion statement when they not only wear their jammies but also their house slippers out in public!!

  6. I never tire of these the limited palette in the black, yellow and green..inspiring!! I will never get used to, nor will my kids of pjs as outerwear. In London some schools are banning parents from picking up their children at school dressed that way!

    Hugs Giggles

  7. Lovely art Lynn. I love to see what you do every week.

  8. I love stopping by to see all your sketches. You are very prolific...and they are always so much fun to see.

  9. Your art is always fun to see... but the best part of this post is your selfie, hello! I love SF, it's been a long time we don't go there, it is so beautiful!

  10. I always spend far too long here, there is so much fun and amusing drawings.
    Great drawing of the "oblivious" lady, I'll bet she is listening to every word.
    Super drawing of the little doggie who just appeared on your page, funny how that sometimes happens. And the 40-years married couple, that's a bit sad, what a pity the man doesn't think the same way as his wife.
    Haha! - the lady who wore a brown jacket in order to show off her friend's colourful one, very amusing - and the intellectual conversation! how perceptive of you.
    Finally I love both your cats and all the other paintings and words too. What an imagination you have.

  11. Looks like you had quite a busy week sketching and taking photos! As always I love the coffee house sketches and I'm enjoying your pet ones too. I have to look for the one photo I have of one of our pets as a kid and add a sketch of her to the other blog. I haven't posted there in a while...just too busy. Have a great day!

  12. Fantastic. So much output! Amazing. I just love all the different people you draw from your day!

  13. wow! Lovely travels and great conversations happening! Wonderful!

  14. Wonderful illustrations, Lynn and so fun to see the photos of your trip to SF! :)

  15. Lynn - love your colorful blog. I use to go to Mill Valley all the time to visit my son and his family - fun seeing your photos. I'm the one that posts sometimes at your other blog Paint, Paper, etc... I'll be back to look at more!

  16. What a great mix of sketches - a brilliant way to keep your memories. San Fran is fab isn't it! Looks like you had a great time. Happy SS x

  17. What wonderful work! They're so fascinating! I love the shot of the pelican too.

  18. A fascinating collection of work Lynn,
    I can't get over how prolific you are... there's so much to see and appreciate.
    Congratulations on accomplishing your selfie. It's great to put a face to the name!
    I wish you a great creative week ahead.

  19. Wow! You have been busier than ever ~ great selfie and handsome husband and glorious journal work ~ I love your style and how it seems to blossom each week ~

    Wishing you a wonderful week ~ ^_^

  20. I am always fascinated how you are able to document your days through your marvelous art journaling. I've been all over Southern California, but never have been blessed to visit San Francisco. Happy Sunday Sketches, my friend! #17

  21. wow, so much beautiful work and I love the selfie!!

  22. It's fascinating to see how busy you are and I like it so much to see all your people in so many different situations but my favourite this time is the sweetly dog looking at his bowl. So cute!


Thanks for leaving your comments as I love hearing from you. Your words of encouragement are why I continue to draw!
