Happy Arbor Day!

For anyone arriving by car, finding parking posed a bit of a challenge this morning; a testament to the popularity of the Arbor Day Honolulu Festival – now in its 2nd year – at Foster Botanical Garden. Educational booths and workshops, kids activities, and of the course the annual tree giveaway attracted crowds and created boundless sketching opportunities. The extensive garden grounds also offered ample refuge for sketchers longing for less fast moving scenery. Show-and-tell illustrated our preferences, from exotic flowers, through giant trees, to sweeping depictions of the crowds with their botanical loot from the day. Chatting and socializing followed, as we succumbed to the lure of the pleasant setting and ample shade trees.

Thank you to the Arbor Day team for hosting our sketchers during the festival!

As always, don’t forget to check out our sketches on Flickr and upload your own!

Make sure to stay tuned for our next event!
