"Sunrise Church, Custer, WA" by Marjory M Thompson

“Sunrise Church, Custer, WA” by Marjory M Thompson

Since “Art” is my first avenue of expression, I am pleased to share the following drawing which I did in Nov. 2013.

The Sunrise Church, Custer, WA – has been my home church since 1977. I briefly sketched the 8×10 picture out in pencil, then finished and detailed it in ink. I did work from a photo I took, as well as standing in the church yard. I have the original, but shared some prints of it with friends and family members and also had some note cards made.
The artist’s name ….Marjory M Thompson

    Wonderful! A broader aspect of the “Walt” we know and are learning to also appreciate more. Both paintings are ‘alive’ with feeling and action.

    Such multi-faceted talent. And your reading, btw, was captivating–and didn’t sound anything like you photo (but then they rarely do) 😉

  3. Great, Walt. I esp., like “Goal” the movement the bold colors – very nice.

    I admire your pen-and-ink drawing, Marjory, and the place name,Custer, WA, seemed vaguely familiar. I looked it up on an on-line map, and then realized why: you live not far from the Canadian border, near Blaine, apparently. I visited friends in the Seattle area years ago, and one of our trips was to Vancouver, via ferry, but we came back by car, and I recall the Peace Arch. So your drawing, which is quiet and peaceful, aroused fond memories.

      Thank You , William, sorry I have not checked back sooner. My mailing address is Blaine which sits on the border, and yes The Peace Arch is a landmark. I am pleased you have fond memories of you time through my neck of the woods. 🙂

  5. Beautiful artwork, Walt! I love that first one. 🙂

    And Marjory, your drawing is just perfect! I love to draw and sketch so yours caught my eye immediately. And I think I may have passed your church before on a road trip…it looks so familiar.

    Thank You, Erin. The neat part about drawing and sketching is that you can do it just about anywhere and even a table napkin can be used. It is possible that you passed by the church, we are in the country, but not lost from sight. 🙂

  7. Excellent artwork artists!! Thank you for sharing! 🙂

    Michelle, Beautiful work. The elephant is powerful and you the smiling mouse delightful. A pumpkin top like that has to inspire one to create.

  10. Walt you are a man of many talents! Great paintings!

  11. Michelle!! I love your style! 🙂

  12. I finally got over here. I am stunned by the amount of talent I see here.
    Fabulous artwork, all.
