Hunting for 413 Sketches, Art Conference

It is lovely here in AXX.  (Airline code for Angel Fire.) The days have been up to about 75 degrees F and lows of around 46 degrees.  We haven't used the furnace this year, but use a heater in the bathroom for showers.  I have had a flannel shirt on most of the time!

I sketched in the living and dining area. I'm sketching in the small travel sketchbook and used a Micron 01 today.

Number 1, something that clicks off when done - toaster.  It is not that wonky.
Number 2, fingernails - mine 



Number 3, glows when on - key drive
Number 4, stretches for use - mini bungee cord
Number 5, loves the sun - trees and grass
I waited for the chipmunk that hangs around the wood box, but not enough sun to attract him as yet.

I turned on the British Open Golf to see how the Americans are doing.  I root for all of them, but of course Jordan Spieth is a favorite because he went to The University of Texas at Austin.  How could I not root for him? So, go USA!

Xanadu Gallery's current blog post deals with pricing on your website or not.  I go with putting the prices on your website.  What about you?

Jason Horejs is the owner and has so much good information on his blog and other publications.  He mentors an artist every year and then has a show for them in his gallery.  I have audited the class for the last two years.  He is generous and informative.  I learned a lot and met some new artist friends.

The Bastrop Fine Arts Guild is having a three day Regional Art Conference with classes, demonstrations and vendors in September 18 - 20.  Jason will be a keynote speaker.  I wish I could be there for that.  If you are near Bastrop you ought to attend the Conference.  Information here on their website.

The "It is not that wonky." comment made me chuckle. I actually did wonder if it was so narrow at the top versus the bottom. :-)

Glad you're settling in. Enjoy the cool temps.

Joanna, I don't know what my hand "saw", I had the toaster right by my computer where I was drawing. We are enjoying the cool. I have a flannel shirt on as we speak!

there probably is a toaster shaped like that out there somewhere ;) :)

its been pouring down rain here, the open got flooded out the other day, and one town ended up under more than a foot of water in some spots when the burn broke

Jo Castillo said...

Jennifer, ha! The toaster is a bit slanted out, but not like that!

The rain did look like a lot of water. It made the Open last longer.
