Since I didn’t remember it until a few days ago, people had short notice of the 42nd World Wide SketchCrawl that I initiated for this morning. I thought it might be a lonely solo gathering at Couth Buzzard Books in the Greenwood neighborhood, so I was happy to see Blanche and Elsa show up. (The delicious mocha didn’t hurt, either.) Even though the folk musician who was scheduled to perform called in sick, we entertained ourselves sketching the shelves of used books and the sunny window view of Greenwood Avenue North. (Besides, how can a bookstore called Couth Buzzard not be entertaining?)
First I sketched Elsa, who had made herself comfortable in the plush velvet-covered chair in the colorful children’s section. Then I moved over to a window table with Blanche to sketch a tree housing a long-abandoned nest across the street.

A group selfie commemorated our participation in the worldwide event. I hope you were able to get out for the World Wide SketchCrawl, too!
