The Quickest Way to My Heart is via a Fountain Pen

Another fun Sunday out sketching with my friend Patrick. This past weekend we enjoyed an unseasonably warm patch of weather, and took advantage of the afternoon light right here in town.

This is Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, a beautiful stone structure on the corner of Chapel and State Streets. Patrick admired the simplicity of the facade, the clean lines of the stunning front door, free of the metal and glass weather-proofing so many public buildings have in this climate (USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 5B).

Not the greatest photo, I was only thinking of taking that beautiful door home with me.

This will be a short post, because I am deep in the details of pre-book-launch which will be official on November 22nd. For those of you who live within driving distance of Concord NH, I am planning a “Socially-Distanced Book Launch” on Saturday, November 28th from 1-3pm. Books for sale, cash only, $15 each, autographs free of course! More details in the post I plan to send on the 22nd. Of course, plans are subject to change, based on pandemic shifts.

For now, enjoy this beautiful church, and take a minute to pause and enjoy your surroundings as well.

LOVE the details at the eaves of buildings.
Last minute photo after the shadows started to shift.
This is the view that caught my eye.
And this is how simple it can be! Intentionally unfinished lines, suggested textures, fountain pen, felt tip pen, and tint brush.
Look at That!

    Hi Bobbie… I just bought your book “Look at That!” and am enjoying it very much.
    I don’t know if this is where I should request your clockface exercise worksheet…
    I tried to go to the website address listed in your book, but I got a message saying “page
    could not be found.” I would love to have a copy of this exercise, if it’s no trouble. I am
    an aging pianist trying to keep my hands flexible and thought it might be helpful for this
    as well as for drawing! The best part of trying to find this exercise has been finding your
    wonderful blog site. I don’t usually follow blogs but found yours to be so motivating
    and inspirational. Thank you so much for sharing your uplifting, kind and loving
    experiences and thoughts with all of us.

    • Thank you so much Darcy, and I apologize for this VERY late reply! I just uncovered 13 unacknowledged comments from ages ago, hidden away in a secret place, how mysterious! I am so glad you are finding my book useful. If you go to the “Contact” button at the top of my blog, you can send me a note and say you’d like the Clockwork handout. That way I will automatically get your email address in a secure manner. Thanks again!
