On Friday I was in Poulsbo to visit elderly parishioners. In between visits, I sat at a sidewalk cafe on the top of the hill and made this sketch of the main street.

Boat Shop restaurant

This is a view of the Boat Shop restaurant in Bremerton, where I had lunch on Thursday. It's in the building of a former boat shop, and has the best food and best view in Bremerton.

Side of the house

This is a quick sketch of the side of our house showing the oil tank. I am dreading the day we have to pay to fill the tank!

I copied this out of a book, trying to learn how to use washes.

Silverdale State Bank

It was a long week last week, so today I drove to Old Town and made a watercolor to relax. This is the old Silverdale State Bank, now a florist shop and a doctor's office.

9506 Mickelberry Road

This is the house we're renting in Silverdale. It's an old farmhouse with a couple of acres of pasture, but it's only half a block from a busy highway and a crowded strip mall. We love the house and the old feel to it, and we just pretend the strip mall's not there. Katy has a garden and I have a place in the barn for my wood shop.

St. Antony of Egypt Episcopal Church

I finally got a few minutes to do a sketch of the church. It's a nice Saturday morning but I've got a memorial service to do this afternoon. In the meantime I made this loose sketch.

Pike Street Market

One of the glories of Seattle is the Pike Street Market. It's a delightful jumble of old shops and stalls with restaurants, flowers shops, vegetable vendors, and art galleries. I wandered around until I got tired and then had a cup of coffee and made this sketch of the little alley between shops.

Bremerton Ferry Terminal

As part of my introduction to the diocese, I went to a meeting of "Fresh Start", a program designed to help clergy with the transition into a new parish. I left from the Bremerton ferry Terminal early in the morning. Here's a sketch of the ferry dock and loading ramp.
