Happy Birthday, Regina! Sketch

It is Regina Burchett's http://reginaburchett.com/  birthday.  She has been a painting buddy, artist, friend for years, now.  Wow!  It is about 17 years or so.  I am thankful for our friendship.  Her husband, Larry, is a good friend, too.  It is fun when couples get along well.

I checked my list for Scavenger Hunt 391 http://goo.gl/s2XXJ9 today and found that I needed to sketch something with a drawstring.  I immediately thought of my colored pencil bag.  I have sketched it before.  Here is one sketch http://goo.gl/6Lf8U9  This bag really fits today as it was a gift from Regina several years ago.  It is perfect for colored pencils which also fit in today's Hunt.  This is what I call serendipity.  :)

Number 1, something with a drawstring - The quilted bag
Number 2, pile or box of colored pencils
Number 3, patterned - the hassock where I put up my feet to sketch

Of course this is not positioned the same as when I sketched it, but you get the idea.  The pattern in the hassock cover is odd in the way the colors weave in and out.

I miss painting with Regina now that she is in North Carolina.  Maybe in the fall when we go to Kentucky for Thanksgiving.  Sounds like a plan.  I will have a latte in her honor when I next go to town, tonight will just be a glass of wine.

I posted a pastel painting earlier so check my previous post.

The pencil bag is cute. I started to ask if you had made it yourself. One of the ladies in the watercolor class asked me if I sewed. I almost snorted out loud. That should be a texting abbreviation - SOL.

Jennifer Rose, yes, mostly Prismacolor and a few Pentech, whatever they are. I don't do colored pencil much, I get bored with the repetitive coloring. Regina says it is therapudic. Ha, not for me!

Bag Blog, you are so funny. I don't sew either. SOL
