Today we met at the Jewel Box Cafe in the Point Ruston complex, near Tacoma. It was aptly named as it was a real jewel with beautiful furnishings and carved wood fixtures. There is even a balcony.
it was pouring rain, most of us settled in with our favorite hot
beverage to sketch around the cafe. Sketchers in the comfy chairs.
I liked the column with the clock. Fortunately, Tom sat down to sketch a different view so he gave the scene some life.
There were two of these carved booths at either end of the cafe. Each had a set of stained glass windows.
We met back up in the balcony, where we shared our sketches and had a group photo. There are at least 2 missing.
