Guanyin Boddhisattva

Yesterday I got on the ferry to go to a meeting in Seattle. I sat down and started reading the minutes from the last meeting, which said that the meeting was in tacoma, not Seattle! I couldn't get them to turn the ferry around, so I had to go to Seattle and missed my meeting. I decided that God must have wanted me to visit the Seattle Art Museum rather than go to a meeting. I made this sketch of the Guanyin Boddhisattva and watercolored it at home.

Starbucks couple

As usual, working on my sermon in Starbucks on Saturday afternoon. Took a short break to make this sketch.

Two boats

Point White Drive is a lovely ambling drive on the outside of Bainbridge Island. I stopped and made this watercolor of the two old boats drawn up on the shore.

Bainbridge alley

Today I had a cup of coffee outside Blackbird Coffee in downtown Bainbridge Island. There are tables and umbrellas in the adjacent alley, and people congregate there naturally. A good public space.

Rooster cafe coffee group

Last Monday I had coffee at Roosters Cafe in Bainbridge Island. There's a group of retired guys that like to have coffee together. They look like they enjoy each other..

Baptismal font...in a meeting

Last Saturday I attended a meeting at St. Paul's Episcopal church. From where I sat, I could see the baptismal font in the middle of the center aisle.

Starbucks guy

Couldn't resist capturing this guy in Starbucks.

Airport people

One of the nice things about sketching is that it makes the time go faster when you're waiting, like in an airport. Here are a couple of people in the Jackson, MS airport.

A southern porch...and chapel

 From September 26 to October 3, I attended a CREDO Conference at Duncan gray Conference Center in Mississippi. There's a wonderful covered porch with rocking chairs (what could be more southern?).
I attempted a watercolor of the lovely chapel at the conference center. Here's the thumbnail sketch I made...the watercolor didn't turn out that well!
