Rainy Day Sketches, Photos

It is a big gloomy looking outside.  About 49 degrees and wet.  It was raining pretty hard when we got up.  We have had about 1.7 inches since late yesterday evening.

I sketched in the big book for Hunt 476
I used a Micron 01, which is a finer line.  No sun so using a flash for the photo.  :(

Number 1, shell - I still haven't found the sea shells I brought back from Michigan.  Must have tossed them.  So, an egg shell from Gene's hard boiled egg this morning.
Number 2, finger - mine

Our front drive after the rain about 9:15 a.m.

I love the Bolivia lady pots.  They look like they are just sitting there waiting ....  These pots survived the fire.  The lady pots are made of cement.

That's great that you got some rain. There are so many areas that are so dry it is scary!!! (How well you know). I like your sketches...I haven't done any today. I had a big art event that took up a good part of my day. Hope to see you over in the hunt.

very neat looking pots :)I'd be afraid someone would nick them :/ (unless they are too heavy to run away with lol)

Joan, thanks. I haven't been doing much. My usual procrastinating. Happy you are getting "art stuff" done. Good luck with the shows. I should sketch today, it's still raining.

Jennifer Rose, the pots are heavy!! The ones that aren't ladies have lost their bottoms, so not good enough to swipe! You made me smile. Thanks.

I like the lady pots too.

Bag Blog, in Bolivia we kept the pots full of geraniums. They have to be watered daily here in the summer so we don' do it because we aren't here. They reminded me of the flower ladies at the market. Nice memories......
