October in the Graveyard

Thanks Mother Nature, you held off the rain and 11 sketchers had a great time exploring fall on the wonderful grounds of the Forest Lawn Cemetery in Madison.

This is a beautiful place, thanks all for coming.

Remember we have a special meetup planned 11/2 at Madison's Hawthorned library - this is Saturday at 1:30. Bring anything to share - drawings, tools, etc. and enjoy hearing about Cindy's participation in the USK Symposium this summer in Amsterdam.

Plus, sketch the library - what's not to love?

November's monthly meetup will be at coffee shop and restaurant Common Ground AND if we have a day of warm weather, it's located right by Pheasant Branch Conservancy. Check the events calendar.

Enjoy fall, get out and sketch,

Meetup this Saturday

Hey Sketchers....

Here we are with our October meetup this weekend and the rain clouds are forming on my weather app...sigh, what can you do.

Remember we do have a rain location, over at the Sequoya Library at EVP Coffee, also possible is going to the Sequoya Library, so don't despair, keep sketching. I'll post a note tomorrow night after I take another look at the weather.

Added meetup opportunity! Cynthia Zick has posted an event on Facebook at the Hawthorne Library and will entertain us with tales of her trip to Amsterdam and participation in the USK Symposium, you can be sure there will be lots to share. Please bring your own sketchbooks and tools to share also - we like to take time to see what everyone is doing. We will meet 11/2, a Saturday, starting at 1:30pm.

So get busy!........... and stay creative.

September Meetup on Monroe Street

Greetings Sketchers,

We got a September meetup in the nick of time, thanks to a warm and dry spot at Roman Candle Pizza on Monroe Street, our backup this month for mother nature's plans. Rain.

This new restaurant on the corner of Knickerbocker and Monroe is a wonderful place for our group to hang out on a Sunday afternoon, beautiful lighting, just a few tables full, tasty food.

Good time had by all, some pretty good sketches too.

Next up, Forest Lawn Cemetery in October. The rain alternative will be EVP Coffee Shop or the Sequoya Library, both in the plaza off Midvale Blvd. I'll be back in touch if that's necessary.

Take care all, keep sketching, no weather excuses for you!
