Sketch and a Pastel Valentine

I sketched in the humongous book again with the Micron 03.  I usually spend about 20 minutes at most on the sketches and sketch freehand.  This is a full page so larger than usual.

For Scavenger Hunt 439 http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1398519
Number 5 fan - I really liked the fan except for the one blade.  It was shorter and more behind the light part .. if I had only used a pencil.  Ha!
Number 6 butter container - glass butter dish
Number 7 scissors
Number 8 cutting board

I was looking at my email and got Richard McKinley's http://mckinleystudio.com/  post accompanied by a list of previous posts.  I saw the one for February last year.  It is so appropriate for the way I feel about pastels.  Have a read of:

A Valentine to Pastel  http://www.artistsnetwork.com/medium/pastel/valentine-pastel

Happy Valentine's Day!

P. S.  The bear in the photo on "A Valentine to Pastel" is the same bear in my post last year.  Strange, eh?

Also T and I were going to the Lost Pines Artist Alliance show in Smithville last year.  Gene and I are going today.  Hmmmm.... The theme is Blue this year, Red last year.  The gallery is on Main Street and the reception is 2-5 p.m. today.  http://www.lostpinesartisansalliance.org/events.htm

Happy Valentine's Day. We have nothing planned. Planning is not our strong suit.

not the biggest fan of this day, gotten way too commercial but it can be a nice day to just do what ever you want together if anything

really like your fan sketch, really neat looking blades :)

Bag Blog, we don't plan either, it just happened to be the same weekend.

Jennifer Rose, you are so right, it is a nice day today. Folks back east are in a deep freeze. That is why we are here!
