Metro Red Line Riders

This week I worked as a volunteer at Pyramid Atlantic Studios in Silver Spring MD and rode the metro so I would have a better chance to sketch each day and get there without stress of driving the car. I only had three stops on the red line from mine to get something and managed to capture a few interesting quick sketches.

A Concert in Upperville

Trinity Episcopal Church

This weekend I went to see the Winchester Arts Chorale perform at Trinity Episcopal Church in Upperville, about an hour west of D.C. They performed Christmas-themed music from the Renaissance up through more modern pieces by Rutter and Rachmaninoff. My father is one of the singers, which made it especially interesting to me.

The church itself is a beautiful stone church I'd driven by many times on my way to the Shenandoah valley. I'd wanted to stop by there for a long time, but hadn't had a good reason until now.
