Procrastination on Packing called Sketching

I sketched for Scavenger Hunt 411. http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1382750 I'm procrastinating on getting ready for our trip.  Can you tell?

I have to straighten my studio and pack art stuff, empty the fridge and pack food, pack clothes, etc.....  Just two days to go after today.  Yikes!

I sketched on the porch, quickly this morning with the Micron 003 pens with color and in the same old large sketchbook.

Number 5, purple - my pretty watrcolor sketchbook.  I got it in Michigan one time with Sue ages ago at James Brandess Studios and Gallery, Inc., Saugatuck, Michigan.  It has about twenty-five pages and I have used about half a dozen.
Number 6, toes - my covered in socks toes.
Number 7, triangle - A folded napkin.  This shape is always difficult for me to find.  This was Gene's suggestion.  Thanks, Gene!

I like the triangle! :-)

Jo Castillo said...

Hi, Joanna. Thanks. I don't know why I have such a time finding that shape. One of the sketchers did a metal clip. I have those and didn't see the triangle. :) Maybe next time it will be easier.

Jennifer Rose Phillip said...

that was a good idea for a triangle, good on Gene :)

yes def. remember to empty the fridge or you might end up with some furry friends you don't really want to visit :p

Jo Castillo said...

Jennifer Rose, I thank you, Gene thanks you. :) Our fridge has done well when we were gone except for once. Joanna had to deal with the horrible mess. It just went out completely as I recall. Not a nice story.

Joanna said...

No, that was not a good story. It had been out a few days when I got there. I don't know why I even looked in the fridge but I did and yikes! It was good that I looked, though. If it had sat there another week in the heat, we might've had to burn the house down on purpose. Oops. :-)

Jo Castillo said...

Joanna, ha, ha. Another reason for burning stuff at the house. Yikes. :-)

Jennifer Rose Phillip said...

no more house fires!!! dont temp fate :)

yeah its the smell of forgotten food that gets me, open door, get hit the face by smell,slam door shut, go searching for ones of John's gas masks before cleaning :p

Jo Castillo said...

Jennifer Rose, maybe I need to get on E-bay for a gas mask. Ha. That is a good idea. And you are right no more tempting old fate!
