Sketchbook & Notes

(Above – Sketching at Poza Honda/Manabi/Ecuador while waiting on the Brown Wood Rail.)
(To see these Brown Wood Rails in Lisa’s Poza Honda ‘back yard,’ download the Artivive app on your phone and aim at the drawing!)
After a successful drawing session, Lisa prepares to leave just before dark at Refugio de la Tomatera – Portoviejo/Ecuador.
“Walk with me? – Step into my World” – some prefer to witness my life through the exposition by the same name at the Museo Portoviejo/Ecuador!

  1. Hi Lisa,
    Do you remember the wisteria painting on sheet rock
    That you donated to the riverboat cruise ship 20 or less years ago? My parents were the lucky winners. It has held up beautifully, so much so that I would love to have one that size for my den. My dad had it framed, if I remember correctly. What might I expect to pay for that size in a wispy floral design with maybe a butterfly or two. Thankyou for your time and talent and treasure.
