Sketches for the Hunt, Photo Mean Gene

I hadn't started this Scavenger Hunt #40. I've been busy, ill, you name it. Marie-Dom has been slack as well. We are both doing some sketching, trying to inspire each other. She suggested the umbrella and radio trying to get us started. (as I made this link, I see she drew some beautiful umbrellas, go look on her link) Being my lazy self, I didn't want to look for an umbrella so here is my

#1 Bird I sketched the feeder in the back yard visited by a cardinal and a Carolina Chickadee, #2 Vase, A pottery vase given to me by Joanna many years ago with bluebonnets on it. It holds artificial bluebonnets so I left them in the vase.

#3 Newspaper, several artists sketched the Sunday paper, so I dug ours out and sketched it, too. (Not as lazy..)

#4 and #5 Pitcher and Radio, the pitcher is heavy ceramic sort of gray with blue flowers, the radio is the only small radio in the house, sort of a boom-box, sits on the kitchen table. These all took about an hour with my ZIG Millennium pen in the Canson, tear out sketchbook, 5.5 x 8.5 inches.

Thanks Marie-Dom, (Fleur on wetcanvas.com), for getting me started!

I forgot to post this photo from the gas station on HWY 71 where Regina stopped for gas on our plein air day out. She noticed the burger sign right away. One of Gene's old friends, DM, in Maine calls him, "Mean Gene". We did not try the burgers!
