Walkin' and Sketchin'

Yesterday was a good day for a walk.  We didn't walk around the lake as it was still pretty wet.  "Horse" was on Scavenger Hunt 493 http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1426050 list as well and I thought our neighborhood horse would probably be home.

Gene walked farther along the road while I sketched.  He is pretty patient about my sketching.

Number 5, outside - must have been coffee time at one neighbors
Number 6, other means of transportation - single horse trailer.  It looks so small and claustrophobic!
Number 7, green and growing - pine tree with ivy (probably poison ivy) growing on it and some ferns down in the left
Number 8, horse - the dark gray which moved the instant I put the first line!  The paint, brown and white, was grazing.

Number 9, dog - these weren't out when we went by, but found us on the way back.  Very ferocious barking with their tails wagging big time!

We also saw this rat snake.  Supposedly they try to make you think they are rattlers by dragging their tail.  It looked bad, whatever it is.

Easter Sunday we went to Greune Hall with Joanna to see Susan Gibson.  You need to go to a show, she is amazing.  http://www.susangibson.com/
 She was giving out plastic Easter eggs with a tip or purchase and Gene and I both won a CD with our eggs.  We were pleased to get them!

There haven't been as many roadside blues this year and this is the first photo I posted.  These are on the way to Austin.

These are the little wooden deer I posted a sketch of previously.  You can see the mirror, too.  The little outhouse has a hanger string on it.  I guess it is a Christmas ornament???  I'm not sure where it came from.  The deer belonged to Mom Frances.  The mirror was in the house.

Jennifer Rose, thanks on the sketches. I never thought or think of snakes as pretty! LOL

Jennifer Rose Phillip said...

Jennifer Rose, I'm not afraid of snakes, per se, but I still don't think of them in a fond way. Ha. I like warm and cuddly. Heh, heh.

You really found a lot on your sketch walk. Nice work. I don't mind snakes as long as they aren't too big. lol

Joan, we can be surprised what is near us, eh? I remember an artist doing a series of a painting a day or a week within a mile of her/his house. The artist found lots of "stuff". I'm not fond of snakes, want them to stay in their place!
