BLOGGING ON THE TRAIN

I'm loving my little Sierra Wireless AT&T Connection while down here in the lower 48. Here I am on the train in Oregon, plugged into 120 Volts and surfing with 3G all the way, except for a while in a tunnel. Wish it would work this well at home.... only 2G there. I left Seattle this morning and will be in Davis California tomorrow morning at 6:50 if we're on time.

In Seattle, I visited friends, went to see the art at The Best of the Northwest fall art show at the Seattle Center, ate some delicious meals and walked miles (the most enjoyable around Green Lake).

I've done one little drawing today of the clock tower while stopped at Portland, but kind of hard to put it on here now, so I found a page done while on a train in Manitoba in 2006 which looks somewhat like what I've seen today:

I've just discovered your blog and love your watercolour postcards. Do you paint whilst on the train?

Thanks, Mary Anne,
I tend to put too much in sketches, but painting from a moving train forced me to paint mostly from memory which is on short supply.

Yes, Ann, I painted the page here on a train in Canada, and I did one little sketch from the train coming to California. I'm glad you like my postcards and thank you for commenting.
