Out and About Sketching

Going out with fellow artists is good for your heart.  I met up with Pomona Hallenbeck today. http://www.sketchboxstudio.com/ We have known each other for most of the time we have lived in Bastrop.  She spends winters here and teaches watercolors in Austin.  In the summer she goes to Ghost Ranch in New Mexico and teaches there.  Besides art, we have New Mexico in common.  She was born in Roswell, New Mexico, where our son was born.  Are they aliens??  Hmmm.

We met for coffee and went to the new Lost Pines Art Center for that.  We followed up with lunch at Neighbors, where we sat out and sketched in the Crossing.  It was a good day.

I'll stretch the sketch to fit Scavenger Hunt 481 http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?p=21005559#post21005559

The Crossing

Sounds like a lovely day - kind of an urban sketcher day. I went to an art show at the CTAC (Chisholm Trail Arts Council). A couple of ladies I really like from my art guild days were showing their oils. It was nice to be with artsy folk - good to see my friends painting.

Bag Blog, thanks. It is always good to be with other artists. Good for you. At least you have classes to keep you connected.

I Grew up in a small town , Magdalena, New Mexico. I enjoy art and the pleasure other people get from my work. I always donate some of my sales and art to charities, especially for children. That started in Bolivia with Para los Niños. (Link on sidebar) "I cannot pretend to feel impartial about colors.
