Mistletoe Jam and Sketches for 385

A quick reminder of the Mistletoe Jam fundraiser tonight!  Yes tonight!  We got a litte teaser yesterday in Bastrop.  They are having live music on the street to bring shoppers downtown.  Not many people seem to know.  Byrd and Street played yesterday from 4 to 5:30 p.m. so we went downtown.  Great show and then we had a great dinner at Baxters on Main.  Yummmy.

Anyway, Byrd and Street host the Mistletoe Jam at Threadgill's South at 6:00 p.m. tonight!  A fundraiser to get help for older kids in foster care find forever homes.  Come down for a super show.  More info here

I sketched in the large sketchbook the last couple of days.  Probably procrastinating and staying away from painting.  Hmmm.  These are for Scavenger Hunt 385 http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1366876  Come on over and sketch with us!

Number 2, up close - candy.  Actually I intended to get closer and then forgot as I was thinking about the celophane wrapper.  I liked it better before I added the marker.  I should have left white highlights.  Would have looked more like a clear wrapper.

Number 3, Something across the room - the nesting tables at the end of the TV stand/fireplace.

Number 4, toe - toe of my shoe
Number 5, sleeve

The candy and wrapper are fun. Watercolor Magazine has an article by an artist who paints watercolor still-lifes set up with glass. Your cellophane reminds me of the difficulty in portraying clear things.

Thanks, Bag Blog. I could have left some white to show the reflective parts but didn't plan ahead. I guess I don't do enough watercolor. Heh, heh. Although I was using markers.

Jo Castillo said...

Thanks, Jennifer Rose. I know how it is, sometimes our list has more food than I need to think about!

Getting a little M. C. Escher there at the end, Mom. I like it. :-)

Jo Castillo said...

Joanna, thank you. I got lazy and didn't do the sketching hand. Ha.

Jo, it is always such fun to browse your blog! I've enjoyed all your clever sketches; you are an impressive artist with the charming bonus of not taking yourself overly seriously. Enjoy your "eye" and your sense of humor.

Mary, thank you. I appreciate your kind words that pep me up. :)
