Cleveland Street Flea Market Sketches
This month we went to the Cleveland Street Flea Market to sketch. It was a really nice visit - they even provided snacks! Sandy gave me a sample of flavored coffee. She told me about her collections of coffee and tea sets. Her dream is to open a coffee shop...

Cars Are Cars and Painting Class is Painting Class
The ol' parking lot with my favorite 4-color pen, and a few notes from my first painting class. Here are a couple of class prep sketches. And here's the work that my awesome students made! Flicker Street Studio students are the best.

Bookclub!
This is from our January meeting, at which we discussed The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker. It was really good! We had a couple of extra guests at this meeting. I don't think they read the book.
