Setting Up

I spent the morning setting up my table at the Soulumination Artist's Sale.  We look forward to having a lot of people show up.  Any one in Seattle is invited to come.  Here is a photo of my table set up.

Getting ready for Soulumination Artist's Sale

Greens in the Courtyard ready to be made into wreaths
I love showing process.  The week before the Soulumination Sale, volunteers gather greens and have four days dedicated to making wreaths to sell at the Artist sale.  100 percent of the wreath profits goes to supporting the work of Soulumination.  These wreaths are not just typical Costco Wreaths but have a look a feel of being artistically crafted. Come on Saturday early to get a wreath.... they go quickly.
I will be posting different sketches of this event in the next few days.

Seattle Art Museum

Today was Seattle sketchers sketch outing.  We met at the Seattle Art Museum and sketch the lobbies which were open to using media other than pencil.  Here is my first sketch done at the north lobby.

Souluminations Artist Sale

Soulumination is a non-profit organization founded by Lynette Johnson a Seattle photographer. The work of Soulumination is to celebrate the lives of children and parents facing life threatening conditions by providing professional photographs  of these children and their families free of charge.

This year Soulumination will have their 7th Annual Artist sales Saturday- Sunday December 1 and 2nd.  A portion of the artist sales goes to supporting Soulumination's work.  I will have my notecards and my yearly calendar for sale.  Hope you can come! Soulumination had asked me to do a sketch of their artist sale.  This sketch was done on location, the people and decorations were from imagination to depict the sale.
