                New garden pride 

Hi all! I'm just back from a week away in Portland, Oregon! You can see more about that on my post before this one. (last weeks)
It's been a good couple of weeks! 
I drew this at our last morning in Portkand, Oregon at a Starbucks there!

Sketchbook Skool started again and I'm taking Andrea Joseph's klass in Creative Lettering! Hoping to grow my skills in that area. I took photos of store signage and drew them in the car on the drive home to California!

We stopped in Ashland and spent a fun evening and night at a Sketchbook Skiol Klassmate-friend, Elizabeth Flanagan's home! 
We always have so much fun with her and her husband and this time with another couple too! 

They have a new puppy! Huge and friendly! 

More drawings at coffee houses!

For those not in my klass those are writing warm up exercises she's speaking! 

More warm up exercises!

Writing with non dominant hand makes for wonky script! 

Blind writing and non dominant hand writing: 

Adding script to my drawings: 

Script on a painting of my garden! 

And next lesson is doodling!

More garden pride!
