Watercolor Sketch - Main Street, Old St. Charles

I sketched this while having coffee at Picasso's Coffeehouse in St. Charles, MO.

The streets were mostly blocked off, and I saw a blur of activity around me as vendors were setting up tents and receiving deliveries of supplies in preparation for Festival of the Little Hills this weekend.

Shortly after lunchtime, I got caught in a huge thunderstorm, and got completely soaked trying to get to my car; thankfully my sketchbooks remained dry in my backpack...

Hi Steve, I love the new blog template and colors you've got here. Looks like you are keeping busy with sketching too. Have you considered getting involved in art festivals for yourself? I bet you already have a wonderful body of artwork to show.
