Skipping Stones

Wednesday, July 23, 2008 at 5:52 PM

On our first day at the cabin Grace and I went for a walk to the creek.  She wanted to show me how she skipped stones in the water and I gave it a try also.  Once we'd exhausted our supply of small flat stones I sat to do some sketching.  Of course I had extra supplies along in case Grace wanted to sketch; which she did


We sat in a clump of wild geraniums and choose those for our subject.  We used the scrap wc paper I had brought along for her and my travel set of Neocolours.  We quickly lost ourselves in conversation while we sketched.  The wolf-dog that had accompanied us on our walk finally came and plopped himself down next to me.  I had a new friend.

    Beautiful place and I'm sure a wonderful memory. Sketching with young people is always so enchanting.
