I took his photo with it a month or more ago, thinking that was the last we would see of the car. What a surprise!! Maybe it is time to buy some lottery tickets!

I'm hosting Scavenger Hunt 330 http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?p=19791659&posted=1#post19791659 so I hope you will join us for some sketching from life. It is a great warm up for painting and is my homework, so I keep at it.
Hunt 329 ended on September 20 and Hunt 330 started. I sketched in the new sketchbook with a regular ball point pen, Pilot. They work well and seldom make blobs or roll the paper.
My third and last sketch for 329:
Number 3, nested - some tables from Peru. We sent these to Gene's sister, Mercy, when we lived in Peru, probably about 1985 or so. She insisted we take them back to replace ours that burned. It didn't take much persuading.
My first Sketch for Scavenger Hunt 330.
Number 1, fan - the fan on the porch. It was such a nice morning, we didn't have to have the fan on. We actually got about 1.5 inches of rain Friday. Ya-hoo!!
I got my paintings from the workshop out today so maybe I will get a post going. I have good intentions. Gene would say, "The road to hell is paved with good intentions." Well, that's the way I am. You realize we have known each other since we were 2 and 3 years old. Getting close to seventy years. Yikes!!!
My artist link for the day
Visit Richard McKinley's Pastel Pointers Blog. It is super full of excellent advice and hints for pastelists. Many of the techniques are good for oil painters, too. The advice on values, color and more apply to all painting.
Have fun, but remember to come back for a visit here.
Thursday's sunrise looking at it and then the sky the opposite way and on the side of the house. Lovely morning. Red skies in the morning, sailors warning. We did get rain late in the day and yesterday.
