Hunt 416 Sketches and Photos

I sketched in the travel sketchbook for Hunt 416.  http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1385647 I realized then that I had numbered the iPad sketch of the shoes out of order.  What else is new?  I'm so busy hard to keep track, right?  No, we are retired and not busy.

Number 7, brushes - some of my watercolor brushes
Number 8, curves - Gene's iPhone holder that David made of steel coated in black.

Number 10, tree - I sketched 3 different kinds but hard to see in ink.  Left to right, a fir, a blue spruce and a pine.

Number 11, plant - some mullein.  A strange looking plant with yellow flowers on the long stem that are good for tea to help clear congestion.  I sketched it last year, too, with some color photos:

There is a double rainbow and deer photos in that post.  I won't put the same photos again.  Ha.

We went to Taos and met Lou (Bag Blog) and Toby  at the Adobe Bar at the Taos Inn to see Susan Gibson.  She always puts on a good show.  Not great photos with my iPhone at night.

Susan's van, she travels with three dogs and a chihuahua she says.  :) The dogs are inside and the door is open and I didn't get it all.  It was dark!  That is my excuse.

Good sketches. I've been too busy to even get the new list for the hunt...maybe this weekend. Sounds like a fun day!

Joan, thanks. I have been having fun with Gene and friends instead of painting. Well, painting is fun but usually a solo affair.

Is Gene's cell phone holder his initials??

Jo Castillo said...

Jennifer Rose, yes, Gene's initials copied from the way he initials things. :)
