A Few More Doubles

I had a chance last night to sketch while I watched a little TV with my feet up. Good to sit down during these busy days!

We had been up early to take Snuggles to the vet. Just before Jennie came home, of course, he took a flying leap down the stairs. He usually waits for help. Bad dog sitters, we!! He seemed OK at first but then began to whimper a little. He has had back surgery so we were worried. It looks like just a sprain in his hip. Hopefully it will be better soon. He isn't in pain today, but is on pain pills.

We were up earlier today, too, to go to the grocery store. Time to get the meat for the tamales, chile balls, posole, enchiladas, etc. I'm getting hungry already. The tamale meat is cooking.

OK, back to the sketches. I doubled up again using them for Scavenger Hunt 158 and the Art House Project.

For the Hunt, number 7, relaxing. Gene reads to relax. And for thinking of you, it is Gene, too.

Number 8, silver. The pitcher is actually pewter, but it looks shiny like silver. Number 9, gift. An Ekkeko from Bolivia. He is plaster of Paris and holds everything you can put on him to bring to you in the next year. Money, suitcase for travel, pots and pans, food, toys, cleaning things, cars, etc. He is about a foot tall. It is the custom to buy him on January 23 at the Alacitas Fiesta in La Paz. They sell everything in miniature. Very interesting.

So for my artist today, I will point to Susana Castillo. She is Bolivian, and I had seen her work in La Paz. I didn't meet her until about four years ago in Austin. She is great and a wonderful artist. Not related. :(
