Going Through my Sketchbooks

The Old School House at the Interlochen Center for the Arts
The summer has been speeding by so quickly!  I'm going back through my sketchbook to see just exactly what has happened throughout the season. 

I conducted a two-day  watercolor sketchbook journal workshop at the Interlochen Center for the Arts 
earlier in the summer.  I stayed on campus in the old Stone Hotel, visited some friends I hadn't seen in forever, and had a great two days with the workshop participants.  Interlochen is refreshingly simple  -  there is nothing glitzy there except the music.  We used to live in Interlochen, and I hadn't been back in a long time.  I had forgotten how great it smells  -  pine needles and wood fires!  Very little has changed, and it almost made me want to live in the woods again.  But I'm happy where we are, and I really don't feel like shifting gears right now.

We can always re-live things a little in our sketchbooks.  That's good enough.

Margie - It was a cute little building - right on the edge of the woods.

Suzanne - thanks!
