Sketching in Langley

I'm very delighted to say that my 'Drawings from Life' blog is now RSS feeding to our local newspaper, the South Whidbey Record. One can find it in the community section of their website: http://www.pnwlocalnews.com/whidbey/swr/community Thank you, Paul Balcerak and South Whidbey Record!
Our WISk (Whidbey Island Sketchers) group met in Langley for some sketching on Wednesday. A couple of us sat on the porch of Mike's where I tried to capture the storefront of the Chocolate Flower Farm across the street. Langley is truly charming with it's old buildings. Very much a village by the sea.

  2. Thanks Katherine! It's a great shop and the gardens down the road are fabulous! Everything chocolate... chocolate colored flowers, plants, chocolate fragrances, chocolate candles. It's quite heavenly.
