My first post!

Hello!  I joined Urban Sketchers Chicago in May, and I am so happy I found them!  I love the fact that an Urban Sketcher can travel to all parts of the globe and find sketching friends everywhere.

That said, my sister and I traveled all the way to Springfield, Illinois last week.  I did not meet any urban sketchers, but I did a little sketch on the train.  Maybe next year we will go farther afield - but there are always things to sketch, even from the kitchen window!

  1. Welcome to the USk Chicago blog, Mary! We are delighted to have you! These sketches are wonderful, I love the view from your kitchen, very painterly!

  2. I'm glad you joined too! Love the view from your kitchen! Nicely done! I look forward to more posts!

  3. Thank you, Alex and Barbara - it's fun to be here!
