Today is Worldwide Sketchcrawl Day and I went with a friend to the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge, in Sherwood, OR, to sketch in the 36 degree foggy weather. It is so beautiful there with lots of water fowl happily swimming in the huge ponds that have been created by the melting snow and rains of the last weeks. Big oak trees like this one were standing on hummocks on actually in the water and being reflected perfectly in the smooth-as-glass water.
And yes, I exaggerated the colors.


  1. I like to colors, of course. Jo colors are so well done!

  2. Just my kind of place to be at, lovely!

  3. Thanks leslie, you know me and color. And Robin, I have no doubt that you'd love being at this place. It's so peaceful there and even though it's near a busy highway no one would know from the quiet.

  4. I did a couple of paintings the same day, at Golden Gate Park. I did see a few others working, but unsure whether they were part of it.

    These trees have personality.

  5. Thanks for your note, Ed. Your note about my trees having personality means a lot to me.


I appreciate comments and questions.
