Sketches and Links

I sketched in the big sketchbook with the Micron Pen 01.  It is nice out and we will go for a walk.  Horse is on the list so I may take a few minutes to sketch the neighborhood horse or horses.  Sometimes there are two there.  Maybe we will see a real dog as well, I usually sketch the toy animals here in the house.

These were done freehand in a quick manner.  Evil grin!

Number 1, fancy frame - copper frame in the guest bath
Number 2, deer - some tiny wooden deer carved that were Mom Frances'.
Number 3, old fashioned - potato masher, this masher is good to break up hamburger when you are cooking it.  Much easier than using a spoon.  Of course, it has to be in a pan that won't scratch with the metal.
Number 4, pretty lidded container - glass jar that usually holds chocolates

Happy Birthday to Roger!  Roger is Gene's little brother that lives in Arizona.  Hope he has a great day!

Jeanette Jobson, artist friend from the internet, is way up in Newfoundland in Canada.  She paints all sorts of things and is a super sketcher, too.  She was out taking photos and captured the icebergs.  I have never seen one, so found this interesting.  Look at some of her fascinating techniques while you are on her blog.

arttutor.com has art courses and so much good info.  I like this post today of painting a dog in watercolor.  Cute and not hard, I may just try this:


Have fun.  More later .......

I have a potato masher just like that! Thinking of the potato masher reminded me of Gene's potato peeler/drill he rigged up when we visited in Angel Fire.

Bag Blog, ha, that drill made a quick peeler for sure! I like "real" mashed potatoes better than whipped. Miss you guys.
