Last week I was in Door County enjoying gorgeous blue skies and excellent bird watching. I am currently doing a Sketchbook Skool class and the assignment that week was to do a sort of collage type sketch of a place you love so the choice was easy as DC is my favorite place. I started out at Base Camp Coffee Bar in Sister Bay with my latte and scone and the owner and staff were very kind and interested and I explained that I would document my day in the sketchbook. I told them I would stop by in a day or two so they could see the finished sketch and they took a photo of it and posted it to the coffee bar's Facebook Page. It gave me an opportunity to tell someone about Urban Sketchers, too. I thought this was great example of the kind of interesting connection that can happen between strangers when you are sketching something you both have in common.
