Short video of the Sketching & Painting in Nature presentation for Sierra Club
I did a presentation for the Sierra Club's first international gathering in 2005, in San Francisco. I was quite an experience, and I was scared to death! ALL those people, and an unfamiliar laptop and presentation!
But I finally got to meet my wonderful editor, Jim Cohee, and he was every bit as delightful as I'd always thought. He took Joseph and me to lunch and we had a grand time getting to know eachother in person. (Turned out they had grown up about 12 miles from eachother, in California!)
Jim was my editor on
The Sierra Club Guide to Sketching in Nature, Revised Edition and The Sierra Club Guide to Painting in Nature (Sierra Club Books Publication) and although I'm glad for HIM that he got to retire...I sure do miss him!
(And yes, we had a glorious time in San Francisco, I sketched at Ocean Beach and the nearby park...wow. Want to go back!)
