One very nice thing about being in Urban Sketchers is receiving comments from around the world. I was on my way to Paris when I received a comment on the picture I painted of sailboats in Greece. I contacted the sender, Marie Christine, and asked her if she would like to meet and sketch together. We met at a metro stop and walked to a nearby pretty square. Marie Christine is a talented, avid sketcher.We spent several hours talking, sharing our sketchbooks and creating a new international friendship. Life is good.
