Sketches, What Else?

Maybe I should just put ditto marks and post the sketches for today.  "My sketches were done on the porch with the old feet propped up and coffee by my side."  I have to drink decaf so it is mostly smell and taste, but I still like to have my morning coffee.

The sketches were done with the Prismacolor Premier 03 which still hasn’t run out of ink.  Pretty amazing.  I sketched in the large sketchbook which I will leave at home for the summer.  I will use the two new small sketchbooks that I got from my kiddos while we are traveling.

Number  13, crumpled - paper towel used to wipe the water off my side table.
Number 14, closed - my coffee cup with the tea lid that Joanna gave me.  You can see it has a slit to put the cord of the tea bag and then is soft plastic so you can squeeze the bag (if you do that) and then leave the bag on the lid.  I occasionally drink tea and this lid is perfect for that and to keep my coffee warm, too.

The temperature was down to 71 degrees F this morning.  Nice!  It was very foggy and muggy however. We did not get much rain here, just the humidity.  About lunch time we had a shower and got about .48 of an inch.  Yay.  The scattered rains have kept it cooler.

We got in some heavy rain yesterday between here and Elgin when we went to Austin to see Jennie’s and Brandon’s new home.  It is brand new, very beautiful and will be wonderful for them.  It is so exciting to move into a new home.

Today is packing and getting ready to go.  Not much time left for that.  

Almost to Angel Fire

Our internet is down at the moment so who knows when we will get back online.  I wrote this early this morning and now it is almost 4 p.m.  Interesting to see when I get this to post.  Internet off and on all day.

Today’s artist is Sherry Fields, http://sherryfields.fineartstudioonline.com/  pastel and oils artist and friend from the Austin Pastel Society.  I’ve known Sherry since about 1999 through APS.  She was an officer and very active member of our group.  She is a real estate agent for her day job and was very helpful with Jennie and Brandon in finding their home.  Give her a call if you have real estate questions in the Austin area or are interested in her paintings.
