A Little Sketching Time

It is hard for artists to get in "art time" when the holidays are in full force. We are trying to reach our goals with family, art and the world around us. So, we do what we can and try to make as much of our time as we can. As I write this, I imagine the same is true, regardless of our occupation. We all try to do our best and keep everything running smoothly. Here is hoping you are on the road and accomplishing your appointed tasks.

For Scavenger Hunt 110 I did a little sketching with my Micron 05 pen in the 7 x 10 inch sketchbook. For the Hunts, the rules ask for time. I never time my sketches, but guess that they usually take 10 - 25 minutes each. I usually put a time estimate.

Number 4, something made of glass. This is a crystal vase from Monterrey, Mexico. It weighs about 15 pounds, I bet.

Number 5, a real or stuffed animal. This is Romeo, one of the grand-dogs. He was lying on the bed, posing. I began my sketch with his eyes and in about 30 seconds he was gone and lying facing the other direction. Ah well... He is a cutie and weighs about 5 pounds, less than the vase for sure. Number 6, measuring cup. Not interesting enough for good ellipses, right?
