Sketching a Parallelogram

I sketched in the big book this morning with a Micron 05.  I am pleased with the parallelogram, an empty box open at both ends that I was breaking down to store.  I am OK with the round trivet, it does look mostly round.  The triangular clip is just sad.

I used a pencil to get the main shape of the box.  A bit of a cheat as I usually sketch freehand.  I did the clip freehand and should have used the pencil!  Ha.  At least I got in some sketching.

This sketch is for Scavenger Hunt 455. http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1407375

Gene framed some paintings for me the other day.  One was a gift for my niece in Tennessee.  I traded her a painting for a hand made egg basket.   She finally has her painting.  I posted about the trade with photos here on my blog:   http://goo.gl/BJdNcG

He also framed a buffalo sketch that my friend, T, wanted.  You can read about the pastel sketch here.

Buffalo framed to 10 x 8 inches in a barnwood frame.  Pastel Sketch.

Now he needs to frame a painting called Coyote Creek of a scene in New Mexico.  I will post about it soon.

We are trying to get our minds set on our trip so we can get ready to go....  We leave too many things to the last minute.  I sound like a broken record!  (Some of you may not know what that sounds like!)

The buffalo is great!

Sometimes "last minute" works better. The mind is more engaged.

Thanks, Bag Blog. That "sometimes" is the operative word in both cases I think. Ha.

the buffalo looks great framed with barnwood :)

last minute packing sometimes works for the best, and really if you do forget anything, you are not going to be in places where things are hard to get

Jennifer Rose, thank you.

Yes, we will have access to most anything we need. We are looking forward to some Tim Horton's!
