"Friends Meeting House"
11" x 14" Ink and Watercolor on Paper
The SCVWS paintsites group met at this sweet little spot, tucked away on a quiet residential street in San Jose. This small building is the oldest Friend's house in California, dating back into the 1800s. It was moved a couple hundred feet when 880 was built. The day was sunny and warm, and we had a small, but productive group painting. I was delighted to see my host for the Croatian Art Retreat, Marion Podolski.
Because I am working on a commissioned ink and watercolor sketch, I wanted to experiment with the medium. I would like my commission to be a bit more sketchy than this, which I am finding a challenge. Knowing I am doing it for a client makes me immediately more careful.
