Sky Valley Prairie Band

9/1/17 Sky Valley Prairie Band at Phinney Farmers Market
At our house, Labor Day weekend is always relaxing. While everyone else is rushing around to squeeze the last drop out of summer before school begins, we stay home or do things nearby and don’t attempt anything too ambitious. Friday evening was a perfect start to it – still sunny and warm, but not hot. We went out to the Phinney Farmers Market for dinner – savory French toast sandwiches from a place called Toste! (I know French toast has been a “thing” for a while now, but I didn’t know how delicious it would be.) Munching our sandwiches, we tapped our toes to the Zydeco music of Sky Valley Prairie Band – three women who all play multiple instruments, including a washboard. I stopped tapping and eating long enough to make a quick sketch. 


  1. Tina, lovely sketches! I came across a book called Paper Flower Tree by Jacqueline Ayer through a blog called Brain Pickings, that reminded me of your people sketches. I loved the simplicity of the drawings in that book, and the story too (childrens book).

  2. Sounds like a perfectly relaxing way to spend the day...good food, music, and sketching. Enjoy!
