Books, Bugs, and Breezes

Today’s sketch event at the Hawaiʻi State Public Library offered perfect conditions on the library lawn (for those who do not mind a bug or two), enticing sketch subjects in all directions, and comfortable seating in the air-conditioned interior (for those who do mind a bug or two). Show-and-tell provided a wonderful display of different approaches to sketching the most tempting view – the front facade – but also an array of vignettes. It was lovely to see several new faces today, as well as many returners and USkO regulars.

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

Stay tuned for our next event on July 15 – to be announced soon!

Hawaiian Steel Guitar and Blues

Sketchers at today’s event in the State Library enjoyed a triple treat: outstanding live music, local history shared by expert musicians, and a backdrop of a gazillion books –– not that any of us found time to read. In fact, the wonderful performance by the Bobby Ingano Trio made it hard to even remember that we meant to be creative ourselves! Sharing our work was also a highlight, particularly in the lovely setting of the library’s inner courtyard and with several new artists joining us today.
