The closest I get to urban is the town of Honesdale, Pennsylvania, 18 miles as the turkey vulture flies from my very rural country road. It is where I will be on Saturday, 23rd July to sketch crawl.
Bill renovated two adjoining building (see left blue house), named it Maude Alley and developed a snug, and inviting space for three shops, his own Milkweed, a cafe and a quality outdoor garden with a bird feeder and comfortable wrought iron chairs. The cafe has good coffee, always fresh and ranked on a scale 0-10 as a potential 9.
Not only will I bring my sketchbook, and a kit of drawing media, I will bring my camera to capture a town I've never looked at with an artist's eye. It is the cafe, I'll head to first for that coffee and a drawing of the feeder--perhaps!
