Sketch and Yesterfest Photos

Today in Bastrop is Yesterfest. This started as a fund raiser for the Bastrop Opera House and is quite a day. Demonstrations of how things were done in the old days. Crafts, food,theater, dancing, music and much more. We wandered around, visited with friends and had a little BBQ brisket. It used to be held down at Fisherman's Park but is now on Main Street.

When we went for the brisket, I did a little sketch for the Scavenger Hunt. We were to do a store we frequent. I pushed the definition a little and sketched the BBQ trailer. It is there every weekend to sell their food. It is in my Strathmore recycled sketchbook, 3.5 x 5 inches, with a generic ball point pen from a hotel. About 3-5 minutes while Gene ordered the food.



This is Lea and Mark. Lea is a great friend and potter. She makes a unique wildflower and bluebonnet design and sells at the new Lost Pines Hyatt Resort and Spa and at the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center. Mark helps and makes glass jewelry. They were sure looking serious about something.




One of the actors, I believe, they were having a shoot out and some of the spectators, old and new together.



A couple of gamblers on the street.



A little jazz music at the north end of the street. There was a folk/country band at the other end.



A demonstration of old washing machines. The little girl seems a little skeptical about using those old things to wash clothes.
