Scavenger Hunt: Hawthorne and Beyond

Most sketchcrawls start with coffee or tea, making it easy to get one item on the list. This was drawn from the porch at The Hazel Room.

From there, I could also get a bicycle (Katura's, I think) and some roses.

 I hadn't noticed before that that bicyclist logo is wearing a helmet.

Here's a McMenamin's sketch that I did from the car last week. I painted it at home and realized that part of the building has become sky.

And here are some lampposts, a new one and an old one, seen from a table outside the Winningstad Theatre.

I've been doing the easier to find items. I'll have to make a special effort to get the bike pile, the elk, and the three groins fountain!


  1. Your work is lovely and inspiring. Thank you for sharing.

  2. I love that I can recognize my bike in your sketch, without even seeing the frame. And the teacup is so delightful! You caught a lot of the fun details of the day.

  3. The Bagdad Pub is deceptively difficult to draw. When my daughter was little I used to take her to dance classes at Do Jump and sketch while I waited for her. I never got a good one. You did a great job with it.

  4. Bill, I know that place. Thanks for your kind comment.
