 I went to Juneau on the ferry on the 3rd and drove a friends truck on for him.  It was a long wait and I sketched this..... with watersoluble ink which I did some watercolor washes over when I got home.

I cleaned up my desk-top and found this little watercolor and some other scans.  This was painted in August when Van, Judy and I went up bay for a few days on our last trip on the Apex.... Van is retiring after fishing on her for over 30 years.  Judy and I paddled the kayak through a passage between the two islands (the darker trees) that opened up on the high tide.

JOHN'S BATH HOUSE 4" X 5 1/2" watercolor
  John, a dear friend passed away last week in California and about 20 friends gather at his cabin  to remember him on Sunday.  I set on his deck and painted this, remembering enjoying his company while we painted together.

It was a gloriously beautiful  fall day.  A blue heron landed in a tree next to the cabin and watched over us for most of the gathering.
