Urban Sketching

Exciting things are happening just when they need to be!  First, there's a new monthly breakfast lecture series called Creative Louisiana.  It's based on something called Creative Mornings, which is gaining an international following.  The first Creative Louisiana I attended was about the new Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame by Trahan Architects.  The second lecture was by renowned Louisiana wildlife photographer C.C. Lockwood.  The whole point of this series is to bring together creative types.  One thing led to another, and I now find myself on the cutting edge of a new group:  B.R. Urban Sketchers A LA Carte.  We are inspired by Urban Sketchers, another international initiative "to see the world one drawing at a time."  Our first outing was last Friday, and we're so excited that we're planning weekly sketches, when we first thought we'd only meet monthly.  Here's my first sketch at City Park in Baton Rouge:

What I like most about our new group is the opportunity to draw meditatively with easy-going people who all have artistic strengths and encouragement to share!
