My great friend Casey of rue Manuel bis and her husband Michel left yesterday after a fantastic, but very busy, visit of several days! They arrived last Wednesday and had just enough time to wash up after a day at airports before the dinner party for 12 I'd planned for them. Ippy, Jeffery, and Moreton, whom you've met (click on underlined words for links) on these pages before , were here with their spouses, along with Patricia and Anna. It was a rollicking evening, I can tell you. I've posted a photo from the party below. See if you can spot irrepressible Casey!
We drove to Charleston, SC the very next morning. I was more the hostess than the sketcher, wanting Casey and Michel to see and do as much as possible in a short period, but I managed to do two sketches of a sculpture I'd drawn a couple of years ago. The recent ones are shown first.
Casey made some really nice sketches and I know she's planning to post them on her blog when she returns to France later this week. Go and see them!
Here's a photo of Casey, Jeffery, Ippy, and Moreton's husband Drake from the dinner party and a shot of the gorgeous sketchbook Casey made for me! I can't wait to inaugurate it!
