Sketchbook from a Book Tour

A Europe Tour in Sketches Recently a friend visited my studio while I was attempting to archive my sketchbooks.

That may sound like an exotic and faraway place but in truth it is a mere 2 hour drive from my childhood summer home where I still spend significant amounts of time. Some friends who couldn’t use their hotel reservation gave it to us and we need up staying in a part of town where I had beer before stayed, assuming that...
