Redwoods and Persimmon

I’m lucky to have some pretty amazing artists live nearby. And every once in a while, we get together for a day of sketching, talking art, eating and drinking tea. I always come home refreshed and inspired.

Here are some snapshots of a day in the redwoods with Gay Kraeger, Nina Khashchina and Liz Steel (who doesn’t live closeby).

Starting the day with tea. I spilt water all over my journal, can you tell?

We then hiked into the forest to look at a large old growth redwood tree.

Back for lunch and a bit of a chat before we headed out to find persimmon, which were not quite ripe just then. That just means we will have to go back.

Fall is late this year. It was only just starting to turn color up in the mountains when we were there.

And just like that, it was the end of the day, time to head back home.

    Love your watercolor sketchbook style. You’ve inspired me to return to the cray-pas of my youth for my blog headers. I alternate them with photos now. Thanks! -Rebecca
