Hunting 395 Sketches and Art Link

I sketched today, as usual very quickly and today extra sketchy.  I wanted to get something done for this Scavenger Hunt 395.  http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1373207

Number 1, stack of something - packs of playing cards
Number 2, pair - a pair of twos from the cards on top
Number 4, light - play of light on the wall and floor
Number 5, corner - this is in the dining room near the sliding door to the porch
I sketched with a Micron 05 pen in the large sketchbook

Art Link for today:

Interesting that Mary Aslin paints still life outside, plein air.  She has a good blog and an informative newsletter.


By the way, I went to the UT Baseball game last night and met up with Joanna.  The Longhorns beat the Broncs from UT PanAm 5 - 4.  The temperature when I got there was 63 or 64 degrees F.  At the end of the game it was 50 degrees and by the time I drove home it was 43 degrees.  Not a pleasant baseball evening in that respect.  The game was close, which it probably shouldn't have been.  Sometimes the Longhorns let down when they are doing well and the team they are to play is not in the same league.  They woke up at the end and made it exciting.  The Broncs were ahead 4-0 until the fifth inning then the Horns got a run and slowly caught up and won in the 9th with a walk off hit with 2 outs and 2 on.  Jeepers! For info about the Texas Longhorns go to texassports.com and click on Baseball.

The corner with light playing on the walls and floor is fun. Good job!

Thanks, Bag Blog, I should have left some light on the back of the chair. Rush job for no particular reason!

Good sketches Jo!

Joanna said...

Makes me happy that you sketched cards. :-)

Jo Castillo said...

Jennifer Rose, Ha! Thank you.

Joan, thank you so much.

Joanna, the cards make me happy, too. I miss playing with real cards. I play on the computer, but not the same......
