Hunting Angels Sketch

I sketched in the big sketchbook with the usual Micron 05.  I tried to pay a bit more attention.  Do I learn more if I do?  I may not learn more, but I can see better and make better lines.

 For Scavenger Hunt 475  http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1416724

Number 3, crumpled paper - a page from Gene's desk calendar
Number 4, religious image - I decided on this cowgirl angel made by Jo Watts.  http://www.jowattsclaysmith.com/  You can see and buy her work in Bastrop and Smithville at most venues.

We have known Jo and Tom, her recently deceased husband, about 15 years.  They lived all over the world, too.  We had many fun conversations.  We were members of the Guild and have worked together.  She makes beautiful porcelain, pottery, paints, silk screen and any art genre you can think of.  Very talented.  She made little angels for a Christmas tree we, the Guild, donated to the Family Crisis Center.  The tree was blue, white and silver with a bluebonnet theme.  The angel was holding a bouquet of bluebonnets. She made several for the tree.  Gene and I bought the tree in the auction.  It had little paintings and ornaments made by the artists.  It was nice to have a piece of art from most of the artists in the group.  Of course they burned in the big Bastrop fire in 2011. Two of the little angels survived.  I like this one with the cowboy hat.

 The little angel is about 3 inches tall and very delicate.

Jennifer Rose, thanks. I should have taken a photo of both I have. The other is not a cowgirl...

Bag Blog, that is right. Most of Jo's pottery that have faces are with an attitude!

Joan, thanks. When people confuse the "Jo" artist, I don't mind as she does beautiful work ... and some funny stuff.
