Lessa 3

St. Mark's Episcopal Cathedral, Seattle

 I attended a preaching workshop at St. Mark's Cathedral in Seattle on Tuesday and Wednesday. The presenters were Walter Breuggemann and Marcus Borg, two of the great biblical scholars of our time. I made this watercolor of the cathedral during a break.

Stella Canfield watercolor workshop

Today I attended a watercolor workshop taught by Stella Canfield. She's from Bulgaria and has a colorful accent and teaches with pizzazz. She helped me with the thumbnail sketch and the finished watercolor. A fun day!

Pike Place Fish Company

After a meeting in downtown Seattle, I wandered up to Pike Street Market and made this sketch. It's always lively and full of energy. The guy in the center was shoveling ice from a plastic bin onto the fish in the display case. Every so often the fish sellers start a chant and throw a big fish back and forth. It's a blast.

Ferry people

I sketched these two women who sat across from me on the ferry coming home from Seattle.
