City Hall, looks like an art deco space ship.  I wonder if one day all the creative types will come aboard and it will launch off into the cosmos, leaving Asheville a cultural wasteland.

This is near Vance Square, and I love the activity of people, places and musicians.  The long light, makes it an ideal for street artists and musicians to perform.  This is the best meeting place and there seems like all type of people have rendezvous here.

Guitarist plays amidst the hustle and bustle.  Street people also patronize the location and they are eager to busk for money with less talent.  The 4th panel is a Dulcimer player in the Grove Park Arcade.  He was listed as a luthier and a cosmic new age spiritual performer.  His playing was no doubt celestial and uplifting.  His performance was between a drum, piano, and guitar.

The ice still has not melted and it was still quite chilly sketching, but it is very interesting to try to capture this slow transition.

This is one of the oldest parts of town and it’s right near the St. Lawrence Market.  I still struggle with drawing cars but I’ve learned to start with ovals and that helps get the gist.

The Grove Park Inn is a wonderful escape.  Located on top of Asheville it was built in the early 1900’s and has seen multiple U.S. presidents and celebrities visit.  I love the big fire places that bookend the cozy and spacious lobby.  I tend to spend entire Sundays there as they sell the NY times.
