Scavenger Hunt 70 ends tomorrow or today, June 3. It is almost midnight. This is my last sketch for the Hunt. I went for groceries yesterday and had to be back but wanted to get "Public" done. I thought the Library would be perfect for that. I forgot my sketchbook of course so sketched on a coaster with a ballpoint pen. Therefore, it was small, quick and messy.

I didn't number it and forgot when I numbered the next sketch so this is Number 11, three things in public - the Bastrop Public Library and the flags. Only two things really you can't really tell what any of it looks like. The library building is white limestone with metal roofing. The flags are the US Flag and the Texas Flag.
Today I did a bit better. I sketched in the large Canson mix media sketchbook with a Micron 03
Carol Marine is excellent at painting and teaching. She is generous with her information. She and her husband started dailypaintworks.com to sell her work and now have many artists there. She has some free tutoring videos and some that are very inexpensive. The site is a great one for artists that paint a lot. You can make your own domain name, have auctions, connect to blogs and newsletters. There are contests and challenges. I recommend it.

She lived in Bastrop for a while before the fire. We were always going to get together but when I was here she was traveling teaching workshops and when she was here, we were in New Mexico or traveling elsewhere. After the big Bastrop fire burned their home, too, they moved to Oregon and now live in Montana. She doesn't do workshops very often now so if you see one you should try it out. She is mostly an oil painter but her advice is good for any painter.
