"Tranquil Sky Over the Bay" was painted from a photo I took in Cape Cod. I love that you can see out to a nearly bare island with just a few cottages.

Last night for an indoor location the Patchogue Sketch Club met at our local Michaels. Apparently they let their meeting/party room be used by local groups if it is not scheduled to be used for a store function. We reserved it and each member brought along something to be used in a still life. We had quite an assortment of objects so we set up a few spots. Sophia had brought a vase of silk flowers and that was what I sketched first with watercolors and watercolor pencils.
Then I focused on Pat's two objects. One was a tall wooden cat sculpture and the other was a kind of rag doll someone in the family had given her for Christmas. They were posed with a pomegranate.
