Symposium Participant: Beth Larkin

I am traveling from Seattle to the dynamic, scenic, great food city of Portland. I am so looking forward to being there with so many talented artists. While I am a fledgling sketcher, I enjoy the process and the meditative experience. I am trained as a web designer and gravitated toward that field because I was a frustrated artist. I found that the computer allowed my talents as a colorist and designer to come to fruition. Now I'm returning to basics and despite major feelings of inadequacy, I am dedicated to work it through.......... tips and observations welcome.

I have been using watercolor and very fine point pens and re-learning about complimentary color. The most rewarding moments of my new found passion have been enjoying a contemplative vision of everyday life.

See you all in just a few days.............................


  1. Glad you are coming Beth! See you soon!

  2. Lovely sketches! I look forward to meeting you.

  3. Beth,
    It was so great to meet you in Portland! I will always remember warming up with coffee at Barista... getting sketching in with all the other USK that came in to warm up! - Polly
