Home-made chowder and fresh baked artisan bread

We had Tamra's family over for Christmas eve lunch/dinner. Served up home made Chowder (extra bacon and clams) and baked some rustic artisan bread courtesy of cook book from Sherri Sutton. Baked up at least six loaves and sent some home with family. Nothing better than fresh bread just out of the oven..... I will post the recipe here shortly.

Urban Sketching - Tacoma

Drawn from the warm confines of Tully's in the Stadium district of Tacoma. On the left is Stadium High School which has a very 'Hogwarts School of Wizardry' feel to it. Yesterday was beautiful day for sketching (probably good for yard work too but we're not going there....). Pen and ink with watercolor in a watercolor Moleskine (and in case Santa is reading this, that is my favorite sketchbook).

Coffee house sketches

Charles Dallum invited me to the Thursday Night Seattle Seahawk game versus Philadelphia. Went into town early via Metro and sketched people at Zeitgiest Coffee located a few blocks from the stadium.

Veteran's Day Ceremony

This older gentleman seemed genuinely sad. Is it reflection on how many you served with are no longer here? I don't want to outlast family and friends.....

Kentridge Jazz Cafe

My daughter's Jazz band puts on a month jam called the 'Jazz Cafe'.

T.Y.A.O. School Concert Series

Kiersten plays for the Tacoma Young Artist Orchestra and one of their obligations is to participate in a series of concerts performed at Tacoma Public Schools - It's a recruiting thing.....Tamra and I chaperoned, which was not a tough job. Lunch time was spent at a nearby park where the kids had to compete with hungry gulls for the pizza served up.
