The view of the lake provided endless sketching possibilities. It was an adventure! I had never driven so far by myself, and never seen the upstate New York area before. Such beautiful autumn countryside and I saw my first wind farm as well. This sketch captures the workshop essence - a watercolor adventure shared with great people in a great place.

Thank You -Lake Bonaparte
I have finished a few more journal sheets from my recent trip to Lake Bonaparte NY. Workshop instructor/artist Jane LaFazio has posted some photos and sketches as well and I encourage you to visit her blog "and visit a while". This page was done at the Natural Basket shop in Natural Bridge NY, a charming shop encompassing an amazing array of antiques and collectibles as well as hand made baskets incorporating old snow shoes and even antlers - Truly unique and such hospitable people, allowing us to sketch, bringing us fresh coffee, chatting about local history and then of course I shopped there too ;-)
