Lunch with the Girls

I Took My Sketchbook to Lunch
This is a pepper grinder that was on the table at lunch today.  It was such a nice relaxing couple of hours with old and new friends. I had a busy day of running here and there, and lunch with friends was a nice break in the middle.

I think this page could use a little more color.  Salt shakers and pepper grinders are always a little colorless, but I could use my imagination and spiff it up a bit.  I'll work on that.

Are you going to sketch something this weekend? Take your sketchbook to lunch?

I remember the view of the Bay from Whitecaps as I type. My sister-in-law's cousin Tim is the chef. What a great place to eat.

Of course! I'll be sketching something!!! Took it to the Dermatologist's office yesterday and sketched/WC'd a lady cross-stitching a baby quilt. Nosy me had to chat and see what she was doing :-)
You make an old salt grinder look terrific! Keep posting.

I love the purply colour of the pepper! Looking forward to see an improvisation :)

How special to have my name included in your blog! Lunch was such fun & I really enjoyed looking through your beautiful, handmade journal. You inspire the artist in me, Catherine--truly, even if it doesn't always come through in my painting. Right now, I seem to be expressing myself more through my jewelry & that's exciting, too. Keep on blogging, my friend! AND let's do lunch again soon! Artfully yours, Laura

Myra - we are eager to see what you sketch.

Sally - It is a great place to eat! Great food and a great view. Thanks for the pic you emailed!

Marj - love you dermatologist sketch!

Vaishnavi thanks! Now the pressure is on to improvise some colorful embellishment : )

I finally got to meet you. Karen talks about you all the time. Watercolors are my favorite, and your style is right up my alley! I never even noticed the pepper shaker. I was concentrating on my friends-new and old! Susan Kinney

Laura - you are expressing yourself beautifully through your jewelry - it's wonderful!!!

Susan - so nice to meet you too! I'm very happy that Karen invited me along.
