8.5 x 11 Pen , Ink & watercolor

Well here's another sketch done with the SD Sketchcrawlers but this time the story is a bit different.
6 of us decided to go to the Self Realization Fellowship here in Carlsbad. They have a lovely garden that is used for meditations.
Well we sketched quietly amongst many families with children talking loud and taking pictures.
When finished we have a sharing time to show our work with our sack lunches. We asked if we could do that in the driveway as to not disturbed the visitors in the garden. NO, we were told.
OK.... outside on the street we went past the sidewalk (public )and ate. Well a few minutes later the guard came out and asked us to leave from there too.
The garden was lovely but.............. we are now signing our e-mail post to the group
The notorious SFC 6 !


  1. Perfect touches of color on this lovely sketch. I think that guard needs to take a little vacation.

  2. Well actually He was apologetic and told us he was following orders from the head person.

  3. Lovely sketch. Too bad about the eviction...

  4. Another lovely sketch.
    The guard following orders from the head person?
    Do you know where the fish stink first? From the head.

  5. Love this drawing. Simple and peaceful. At least you came away with a good piece of art and a life experience to mull over when you think of SRF.

  6. Pat,
    Yes , These moment are definitively moments to learn. I did enjoy drawing that little pond. Thanks for stopping by.
