Thanks for a wonderful experience

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Urban Sketchers Symposium in Portland. What a wonderful experience; sitting back home in my studio in New York, it almost seems like a dream.

First of all I want to add to the many sentiments already written here and thank Gabi Campanario for having the vision and the drive to pull this Symposium off and make it look so effortless. It required a ton of work and you really did a wonderful job. I enjoyed your presentation about your work VERY much, like I said then, where do you get the energy? Sincere thanks Gabi, you made something wonderful happen for all of us. And of course thanks go to Patrick and the folks at PNCA.

Also I would like to thank the other presenters: Tia Boon Sim, Lapin, Isabel Fiadeiro, Simonetta Capecchi, Matthew Brehm, Kurt Hollomon, Jason Das, and of course, Frank Ching. You all are so talented and I loved seeing your work in person and listening to your philosophies of drawing and art and education. As Frank Ching mentioned, it is so nice to hear other people's perspectives and get a new look at something we all love so much. It was a pleasure to meet all of you and I am privileged to have had the chance to work with you all. It was fun to tag along with Lapin and Tia's sketching groups as well.

And of course thank you to all the participants without whom there would be no Symposium. Your enthusiasm and drive to learn and create was inspiring to me. 

The Sunday after the Symposium was over I took the opportunity to go back to the GORGEOUS Steel Bridge and make a few drawings; here's another one below. (I have posted some other work from Portland on my blog as well if you want to visit.)

Thank you again everyone, looking forward to next year's Symposium! love, Veronica
