Sketch Hunting and Packing

Only a couple of days to go.  I did sketch in the big sketchbook for Hunt 456.  http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?p=20854541

Number 7, toast - w/butter
Number 8, shiny - knife and plate

I did initiate the big book.  I have been careful not to have any food nearby.  I finished my sketch and left the book open to take the photo.  I then decided to eat the toast and had a cup of coffee in my hand.  I set the coffee down about a foot away on the stool, a bit too hard I guess and a blob of coffee flew up and onto the page.  Some ran down the long side.  Not much, but now initiated none the less. Sad to say.....

We are in the final stages of packing.  I put my art supplies usually in a large tote.  This year I am taking a smaller tote since we aren't pulling the trailer.  You can see the packing for our Montana trip and read about packing for a workshop (when you have lots of room) here.

The tote is helpful as it is sturdy and we can put stuff on top of it.  It can stay where we don't need to get to it until we get somewhere for a few days.

More later.....

I don't actually consider a sketchbook finished until it has some kind of food stain on it lol

Is that like the first scratch on a new car? lol

Jo Castillo said...

Joan, yes it is. Sigh......

Jo, it was such fun to browse your blog today--it has been too long since I have visited some favorite blogging friends. Don't know if you are on the road yet or not, but hope you have a super summer. I love your paintings of Coyote Creek and the soulful burrito. All my best, Mary

Mary, nice to see you, too. Thank you, it was good to get my fingers dusty. I hope you have a great summer as well. I love your painted silk scarves. :)
