Hunting at Night

Here it is almost midnight and I am posting my sketch for Scavenger Hunt 107. Where does the time go? I just sat down here at the computer, right? I have been trying to just check my email three times a day. That is hard when I am hanging around the house procrastinating about painting, working on my new web page, cleaning house, cooking, etc. You know the drill. I sit here to work on the web page and before you know it, I decide to take a break and check my mail. Well, I will keep working on that. So hard to change bad habits. Sigh.

My sketch this evening was done with a regular old Pilot ball point pen. They are the best I have found for sketching when I don't have access to one of my sketching pens. This is about 20-25 minutes in the regular sketchbook. Can you figure out the colors on these items? Heh, heh.

Items number:
  • 7 leaves
  • 8 flower pot, a gift from Jennie.
  • 9 figure (doll or sculpture) A little Uncle Sam gift from Jeanne.
  • 10 cup
  • 11 bowl
