Home Again Jiggity Jig ... and Hunting Sketches

I sketched out on the porch this morning with my feet up enjoying the nice weather, view, etc.  I haven't even checked e-mail this morning.  I hope there is nothing urgent!

For Scavenger Hunt 329, I sketched in the sketchbook that Sue gave me.  It has smooth heavy paper suitable to pen and ink and watercolor or whatever.   I used a Pilot pen, regular ballpoint.  I then felt obligated to add some watercolor.  The pen doesn't show up as much as I like.

Number 1, leaf - the geranium leaf, a bit yellow since it is hanging and not watered for a week.
Number 2, kernel/kindle - I chose Gene's Kindle.

It is good to be home.  I hope to review the workshop tomorrow.  I have to go through photos, take photos of my paintings, etc., etc.  We need to finish unpacking, shop, straighten up and more.  Gene is out on his TerraTrike and that is excellent!

Welcome to Texas as we enter in from Arkansas to Texas at Texarkana.

A few Texas cows as we get closer to home.  Probably near Buffalo.

It is always good to get home, except for the laundry. I'm hoping to look over thangs from the workshop today, too.

It is good that Gene is riding - maybe the Arkansas hills were inspirational. Lets hope that the workshop inspires us.

Hi, Bag Blog, you are an inspiration. You already posted about the workshop! You have been busy.

Surely I will get some things done. Thanks.

Glad you are home. I always hate the unpacking part and getting things back to normal.

Jo Castillo said...

Joan, sometimes I wonder what normal is? Ha. You definitely know the feeling as you are a gad about, too.

Joanna said...

Hope all is "normal" by now! :-)

Jo Castillo said...

Gosh, Joanna! I hope so, too.
