Garden, Green, and Saved Sketch

Most of my sketches are done in the living room with my feet or the big sketchbook on my footstool.  I have sketched on the screened porch so many times that there is nothing out there I haven't sketched multiple times.  For variety, I sat in a chair on the porch by my studio and held the big book on my lap.

For Scavenger Hunt 495 in the big book with the Micron 01.

Number 2, from the garden - the view toward the street
Number 3, green - leaves and grass
Number 4, saved - the big and small pots from Peru.  They are lopsided from the fire, but not as bad as my sketch.

The Longhorns came from 5 runs behind and tied the game with TCU and went into extra innings.  They lost in the 11th inning.  It was on ESPNU so we got to watch.  We missed the first two innings as a lacrosse game was on and it went into 4 overtimes.  Yale beat Penn.  Whatever came on next must have really been late!  The game today is on ESPN2 and we don't have that channel so hope to listen on the internet.  Tomorrow the game is back on ESPNU, so maybe we can watch.

Hook 'em Horns!

Love your pots from Peru. Glad you had a different view to sketch. I'm away from home...and hoping to get some outdoor sketching done tomorrow if the rain stops. Had mostly rain on the trip up and then the rest of the day up here. I have my fingers crossed for tomorrow.

Joan, thanks for stopping by. It is hard to travel in the rain. Easy to miss many of the sights that show up in the sun. Hope you find the sunshine....

Maybe you could do a painting of the lopsided Peru Pots. Are they colorful?

Jo Castillo said...

Jennifer Rose, thank you. We had lots of pottery ceramic things survive. Most had melted glass and gunk on them so not usable in any way. Must have already been fired!

Bag Blog, the pots are beige with black trim, something like horsehair pots in New Mexico. They had black smudges already and now have more. Ha.
