Sketches for 442 on the Road

We made it home.  Yay!  We both have colds.  Boo!

I sketched in the travel sketchbook with a Micron 08.  I also sketched a bit that didn't get posted.  Sometimes I can't think and draw. 

I sketched the yellow bucket and bag with yellow on the sides, but never posted it on wetcanvas for Scavenger Hunt 441.

Number 2, what you want right now - some wine and snacks at the hotel on the way home.  Some of you may know about chicharones, fried pieces of pork with fat.  Sooooo good and bad.  Ha.  We got them at Barelas Coffee House before we left.  https://www.google.com/search?q=barelas+coffee+house&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8  We had breakfast there a couple of times.

Number 3, lamp
Number 4, badge - Gene's retired badge on a wallet type holder for his credentials as well.

We arrived home to the yellow gunk.  I have mentioned this before.  The loblolly pines put out their pollen.  It does not cause allergies but gets all over everything.  Yellow powder.  When wet, stains wood, etc.  It comes at the nicest time of year for having the doors and windows open but we can't as it just comes in through the screens.  We didn't get the furniture covered before we left on the porch.  Sigh.....

I went out to water the geranium and there it was!

Glad you are back home, but sorry about the yellow gook. LOL I'll have to get over to WetCanvas and get back into the hunts. Once I stop when I'm on a trip it is soooo hard to get back into it. You don't stop so you don't have a problem.

horrible stuff :( we wont have a similar problem anymore, the tree that caused sticky sap things to fly everywhere is gone :)

Joan, guess you are getting home as well. It is hard to get back in the groove. See you soon.

Jennifer Rose, thanks. We still have many trees with the yellow gunk even after the fires. Thank goodness the pollen does not cause allergies.

Glad you're home for springtime in the hill country. I posted a painting for you to critique.

Bag Blog, we have 3 little bluebonnets in the yard. There were quite a few on the road near Brady and Marble Falls. Purty pretty!
