We get some really talented people staying with us at the Addison. I previously posted about a couple of guests that attended a 5-day painting workshop here on the island. We recently had another guest, we’ll call him “Dave”, that spent some time sketching island landmarks. His pen and ink sketch of the Amelia Island Lighthouse is shown here.
Dave took a photo of the lighthouse from a scenic outlook in Fort Clinch State Park. He then spent most of the afternoon sitting in the sun on our veranda working on this sketch. The progress was interesting to watch as the layers of the sketch were developed.
I like the sketch and I like the fact that Dave sent it to us. It gives an innkeeper a sense of satisfaction in his work when guests keep in touch with photos and memories of their visit.
