My dear friend and sketching mentor, Mari Le Glatin Keis, lost her battle with cancer in January. A celebration of her life will be held this weekend in Corvallis, OR. Friends and participants of her many workshops were asked to contribute a page for a sketchbook to be assembled for the family. I took four trips with her and my page represents these great captured moments with Mari. She not only was a great influence on my art and it's process but also how I now live my life everyday. Merci Mari.
