Silverdale Medical Center


Today I went to the doctor to get acquainted with my new physician. He's a bright young man, typing busily on his computer while firing questions at me. Afterwards I made a sketch of the clinic.

Summer barn

This is the old barn on our rental property. I did this watercolor in the field above our house, and the sun was shining directly on the paper, making it hard to mix the watercolors.

Hood Canal house


I visited some parishioners whose house is perched just above Hood Canal. It's a charming old place, built in 1908, and I asked them if I could make a sketch before I left. Here it is.

St. Luke's, Sequim


When I was in Sequim for a meeting, I made this sketch of St. Luke's Episcopal Church.

Our barn

This is a view of the barn behind our house. It's a lovely old thing left over from the days when this was a farm.

Eating breakfast

On Monday, Guy and I made a trip to Florence to work on our house. I had breakfast at my favorite cafe, Nature's Corner Cafe, where I sketched this couple.

Our house (again)

This evening I made a watercolor of our house. It was a beautiful evening, calm and just the right temperature to sit for a long time outside.

Clear Creek Trail interpretive center

The Clear Creek interpretive trail starts about two blocks from our house. The area near the creek has been left wild to preserve the ecosystem of the creek, and a well-built trail meanders along the creek for a couple of miles. Today I made a watercolor of the interpretive center for the trail.

Fremont Abbey

Today I went to Seattle to attend Clergy Day. This was held at the Fremont Abbey, which is the home of the Church of the Apostles, a unique experiment at forming a "post-modern" church. The speaker for the event was Ian Mobsby, an English priest who is a leader in the Emergent Church movement. He and the others with him gave a compelling presentation about how they're trying to present the Gospel in a postmodern society.

During lunch I went outside and made this sketch. On the ferry home I added color.
