"The Richland Community Center at Art-in-the-Park Day"

See more here:
One day each year a local art gallery sponsors the Art-in-the-Park event in Howard Amon Park, a popular park that sits on the banks of the Columbia River in Richland, WA.

It was also the day Robert Dodd and his wife Susan Chase-Foster joined us.  In town to help celebrate a relative's birthday, Robert contacted me about sketching, so we met up here. 

The park was full of white and blue topped tents with vendors from who-knows-where, selling everything from tacos, to beaded necklaces, to oil paintings, to bags, and scarves, and more.  The only part of the park unaffected by the melee was down in the southern portion where the community center is located.

  1. This is a wonderful drawing, Jim. That sounds like a fun event... Did you also do a drawing of all the melee, or were you trying to avoid it that day?

  2. Hi Katherine, thank you for the comment. As a matter of fact, I did, but I didn't like the way it turned out so I didn't post it on the blog....but since you asked, you can find it here:
