A year ago this month, I started bring my sketchbook with me on hiking, climbing and mountaineering adventures. Bringing my art into the mountains with me has allowed me to experience the PNW in such a deep way. I am so happy I get to be on this adventure, and most of all that I am connected to such wonderful people through my art. Here are some of my favorite paintings and adventures from this year!
As everyone began to draw I felt a peace and wonder around us. Being in nature with like-minded ladies was a magical feeling. Everyone was in this beautiful place to represent their experience of the wild on paper. We all wanted to draw in nature: to search out the parts of the landscape that called to us and made us feel wonder.
