Bayview Market

Throughout the Seattle area, they had farmer's markets, which I loved.  Here in Langley we have the Bayview Market.  The produce is local, organic, and magnificent.  I sketched this scene sitting next to a wonderful guitar/vocalist who's name I regret not getting.  The booths next to me were Bob Bowling Rustics, a fellow who creates super imaginative one-of-a-kind structures, Ferry View Farms, and a bonsai plant seller.  Today's sketch is called "Sale on Bonsai" honoring the bonsai seller.  She's the blonde in the red top.  There was so much going on ... note the fellow in the center, the author one could meet today.  I tried to capture the busyness of the place, as well as the sparkly lightness of this sunny day.
