Sketching or Nothing

I have been either sketching or no artwork at all lately.  The Scavenger Hunts are great for making me do something.  I have been part of the group for so long that I feel guilty when I don't sketch.  I'm not sure guilt is a good reason to get out the sketchbook, but it seems to work for me!

I sketched in the large sketchbook yesterday at my desk.  That is how the mouse and photo loader came into play.  I am cleaning off the desk and catching up on my paperwork so I can do our taxes.  Better get with it, right?

Number 5, first thing you see in the morning - the projected time on the ceiling.  When Gene got the clock it bothered me to see the light up there.  It flashes the time and outside temperature every 3-5 seconds.  I am used to it now and when we stay at a hotel or someplace else, I miss it.  We take it with us if we are going to be gone a few nights.
Number 6, shadow - the shadow from my extra mouse and photoloader.
Number 7, shell - no shells in our house, so am subbing this pottery pot that survived the fire.  It is from Peru and sort of shell shaped.
Number 8, nail - my pinky nail

For my art link today, Jenna, http://thecozyred.wordpress.com/, on wetcanvas.com, Southwest Forum, shared this with us.  The painter is blind and is "amazing" as Gene might say.  Scroll down near the bottom of his page for a video.  Inspiring!


 Arckh!! Not doing what I said, I gotta get out of here.  Caio!

At least you sketch. That is keeping your finger in the pie. Toby put some shelves up for me to put art stuff on. I have plenty to do organizing myself.

Jo Castillo said...

Bag Blog, thanks. Congrats on the shelves. Always a help to have storage and display space. We have good supportive husbands!

Jo Castillo said...

Jennifer, thanks for thinking positive thoughts for me. I think of sketching like homework and put too much pressure sometimes, ha.

Joanna said...

Wow. The paintings from the blind painter are pretty amazing.

Jo Castillo said...

Joanna, you are so right! There is a lot of determination there.
