is up and running. It started April 29 so I am slow to the starting line. Nice thing is, that we, sketchers, do not have to start or end on time. We can post or not post and comment or not comment. A relaxed group but I like to take part as often as I can. I was my typical lazy self.
I sketched in the big sketchbook with a Micron 08 and added colored pencil. For the scenery I went out and sat on the sidewalk curb and held the book on my lap. I thought you all deserved a change of scenery. I normally sit on the porch and sketch toward the lakes.
Number 2, jewelry - a silver roadrunner pin with a turquoise eye.
Number 3, something orange - a knife in its scabbard
Number 4, favorite knife - the red counterpart out of its scabbard.
Number 5, scenery - across the street.
The Longhorns play tonight. I wish they would "play" and have fun. They were swept last weekend by Oklahoma State (lost all of the three games). They were tied for 3rd place with Oklahoma State in the conference. Now they are about 5th. They have to win the tournament in Oklahoma City near the end of May to get into the NCAA playoffs for a chance (and I mean any chance) to go on to the College World Series. They have had a very 'off ' year for Texas. We support them and go to the games, but it hasn't been as much fun. They seem to have all the talent, some wins have been big. In others they struggle and it shows. Ah, well. Hook 'em Horns!
