Sketches Hunt 94, Black, Bandages, Looking Up

Sketches for Scavenger Hunt 94 on wetcanvas.com. I'm still sketching with a pen and do not change my lines or pre-sketch. I have progressed to faster sketching and more accurate for the most part. Today I wasn't paying much attention and the Band-Aid box is off in perspective. You should be used to that by now. (new readers can read about why I do the Scavenger Hunts here) It is not lack of knowledge as much as being inattentive, um, lazy. I have some good resources including a book that Joanna bought for me. I didn't bring it so can't give you the name. It is very good and explained in a readable way. I am reminded to think before putting down the second line. Ahhhh.

Number 1, bandages -- the crooked Band-Aid box (maybe it looks open?) and Number 2, something you carry in your pocket, my keys.

I always carry my keys in my pocket. My theory is that if my purse is stolen or left behind I can still drive home. The other day in Magdalena I wore pants without pockets so put my keys in my purse. We were leaving our motel and we were in the van. I said I wanted to go back in the room to wipe a spot off my pants. I went in, leaving my purse in the van. Gene got out of the van to get his phone case from the pickup and closed the door. The van locks are a little goofy sometimes and the doors locked. Luckily he hadn't started the motor yet. We had to go, so we went in the pickup with my purse and telephones locked in the van! Gene had the pickup keys and I had the room key. Later, the City Marshall opened the van for us. No AAA or garage in Magdalena. :(

Number 3, something above my head - the cooler vents and Number 4, something black - the chimney to the stove.

I hate it when that happens, but I am glad you got into the van withoug calling the $50. locksmith.

Jo, I have given you the Arte Y Pico award on my blog yesterday.

Jo Castillo said...

bag blog, Ain't that the truth? Maybe it was a good thing there is no locksmith there. Ha.

Jo Castillo said...

Linda, thank you. I'm appreciative that you read my blog and keep at it. :) I will take care of my award, soon.
