So yay for the Rose Garden! As G. Stein said, "A rose is a rose is a rose...." and let's not forget that Gertrude Stein was (along with her brothers Leo and Michael and her sister-in-law Sarah) an early and energetic supporter of many 20th century artists! I was going to post the Matisse portraits of the Sarah and Michael Stein (just because), but instead here is a blast of summer color. It is Matisse's portrait of his wife, who modeled in a black dress -- the way Matisse "translated" into color might be a good jolt of energy for a rainy winter Seattle SketchCrawl day, but I'm hoping for a sunny day at the zoo, elephants and all!

Very nice work!! I Love the Rose Garden Idea as well! I hope the weather stays up for us!

As far as the 19th goes. I am a best man for a wedding coming up next month and I just found out about a grooms men meeting on that day... I may not be able to make it :( but I will be there in spirit if I can't!

See you guys in a week!

So sorry for your dilemma, will be thinking of you and your dad. :( Be well, play hooky from your wedding stuff and join us at fishermen's terminal next Sunday!
Pick another day for another zoo trip, some of us will join you! Meanwhile hope you'll draw at home and post to sketchcrawl!
