Today, I had an unplanned meet with her as the itinerant sketcher prepares to embark on new life adventures. As we were chatting about our next steps, she whipped out her sketchbook. Her sketches, they speak much even without her there; I love seeing her on-line posts coming up. She has kept sketchbooks for a long time, but last year, our mutual friends Minnie Teckman and Viv Richards went on the local radio one Sunday morning to chat and sketch along to. https://www.facebook.com/groups/artskillsworkshops/
My poor rendition has not seen light of day since, for good reason I may add. Anne however, has been sketching regularly since.
Her posts online drew the attention of the Sketching Workshop group, limited to 150 people, which she joined by invitation.
There is a great ethos about the group. It invites participants to actively share their comments and feedback on work and asks to be ‘encouraging’ and constructive in their comments. What a healthy approach, very growth and development centric rather than protective, negative and limiting.
I wish Anne well for the future, we parted with the words vignette and static/ dynamic gaining new meaning for me. No doubt she will be posting more of her work on-line. Look out for her.
