Last weekend I spent two days at Tualatin Wildlife Refuge with Oregon Botanical Artists taking a nature journaling workshop with Pat Burrell Standley from Missouri. It was wonderful sketching in the refuge among young and old oak trees, observing wildlife, walking, basking in the sun and visiting with friends from OBA. I tried a new journaling technique of recording sounds in forms of color marks or lines on paper and it was an interesting experience that helped me experience being in the moment. Below a page from my sketchbook completed over the weekend. Weird globs (top left) are "apple" gals formed by wasps!
