- North Street Community Garden Sketch
High view perspectives looking West over Portland from this community garden. Included this painting from JEH MacDonald, one of the founding members of the Canada's Group of Seven which reminds me of Summer's Bounty winding down. What will you sketch? Get outside and play! It matters not what experience you lack, rather the experience you will acquire. Pencil and paper are all the tools you will need!
- Evergreen Cemetery Sketch
About Evergreen Cemetery is a garden style cemetery in the Deering neighborhood of Portland, Maine. With 239 acres of land, it is the largest cemetery in the state. Established in 1855 in what was then Westbrook, the cemetery is home to one of the state's most prominent collections of funerary art. Coffee talk after an hour sketch at a nearby cafe.

Romantic Alert!!! - Meet like-minded absolute beginners - Bring 3 things: something to sketch on, something to sketch with and you. - Sketch from the train while moving, outside, or at the museum. - Please RSVP - Museum is $5 but I heard it is free if you also book a train ride. (no idea how much is that) - Somewhere along the lines there will be icecream. Not sure :) Weather: sunny again and a gorgeous sunset very likely!
