More for Hunt 494

Hunt 494 finds me sketching in the big book with a Micron 05 that is on its last leg.  Still works, though.

Number 5, book - Joanna gave me this, the Canadian artists were somewhat like the Taos, New Mexico, artists

Number 6, little - a little blue ceramic pot
Number 7, heavy - an iron skillet

I sketched quickly to have something for the Hunt since I am hosting.  Not the best of sketches.  On the other hand, I almost always sketch too quickly!

We had a good weekend.  Friends that we met in Bolivia years ago.  Vic worked with Gene and Estela is a great artist.  We had fun painting together in Bolivia.  Didn't have enough time to paint together now.  Rats.    Maybe we will get together with them way down south in the Valley.....

The Longhorns won the two games they played at Oklahoma State.  The third game was cancelled for weather.  There was dangerous and deadly storms over the weekend.  I feel sorry for the families that were affected.

We had an unknown wedding party by the lakes taking photos.  Fun.

I've got to go over and get the list for your hunt. Doing the fake journal just kept me too busy to get to the hunts very often. I'm glad there are some of you who are keeping it going. I'm heading there now if nothing sidetracks me. Glad you had fun with your friends.

The photo of the wedding party looks a bit like an old Master's painting of wood nymphs.

Joan, thanks for taking the time to stop here. It is so hard to keep up with all the different groups, paint outs, sketching and still have time to paint. Double thanks.

Bag Blog, you are right! Could be a painting there.
