theTravelsketcher this week – June 11, 2020

Another glorious spring week, well a little rain but the plants love it. Registrations are starting to come in for the Yes! You can travelsketch! Workshop on July 7 at Discovery Park, there is a limit of 8 so register soon.

Beautiful planter gardens are one of Tricia’s gifts to the world, well at least to me and those that drive by. Sweet peas seem to be quite happy this spring.

If you are in the Mukilteo area you know abut my column in the Mukilteo Beacon. They requested a special sketch for an upcoming cooking column that will appear in the Mukilteo, Edmonds, and Mill Creek Beacons. Here is a sneak preview.

Tuesday it was time for a quick trip to Mukilteo Beach, I sat on a bench near the boat dock, there were people walking by, boats on the water, and of course interesting driftwood.

Wednesdays I take advantage of Tricia’s half-day in the office, so again had a café noisette at Uptown Espresso. A sign of spring and recovery from Covid is the number of people out and about.

One of the significant happenings this week was that France is now open for travel, and it appears, according to the French Visa website, that they are taking applications for long term visas – who knows we may end up in France yet. I do miss the villages, narrow roads in the country, restaurants in the cities.

If you are ready to dust off your sketchbook come and join us at Discovery Park July 7, be sure to register in advance because space is limited. Enjoy the week, get outside and find something to sketch. Tag #thetravelsketcher on Instagram so we can all see it.

    So glad France is back on your list!


    1. We are glad too, but with a two year delay who knows what will happen. One way or another we are anxious to get back to exploring the world.

    Nice sketches in your latest posting Terry. France or bust is looking like it is coming sooner rather than later.


    1. We are still thinking early next year, but of course we have learned that everything changes, so we will see. But the idea of travel opening up gets us excited to pack a bag.

    I love your still life for the cooking column of the Mukilteo Beacon. Delightfully propped!


    1. Thank you! This is the original, I liked it. Then they decided they wanted it landscape instead of portraits so I had to do a bit of tweaking. Thankfully easier since i did it digitally.
