Sketches for Hunt 503

Today is quiet and hot .. what else is new?  I sketched in the coffee table sketchbook with the Micron 01.

Jennie wanted to know if the pastel of Gene would be in there.  Well, no dust in that big book.  Maybe glue in a photo??  Need to fill the pages some way.  Ha.

Scavenger Hunt 503  http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1430516


Number 6, arch - the arches over the kitchen counters.
Number 7, hanging - the pottery stars
I thought I would show the curve of the page when I take the photos.  Making the pages flat for scanning was ruining the spine of the book, so photos it is.


Number 8, coffee pot - the latte maker by Mr. Coffee.  It has worked for 10 years plus I think.  Gene got it for Sue and I to use when we can't find a "real" coffee house.  For the price, about $20, it can't be beat.
Number 9, something in a jar or bottle - pepper in a grinder bottle

Do you listen to podcasts?  I do occasionally, usually something about art.  Joanna was on Elizabeth McQueen's podcast the other day.  Pretty interesting about a song.  Made Jennie and me cry.  The first part is how Brett was influenced by Joni Mitchell when taking/using mushrooms.  I can get a high from music or art on my own without artificial highs.  Ha.

Scroll down to the podcast on July 12, Brett Dennen.  It has Joanna at the end.

Joanna is talking to Elizabeth about how the song, "Where Have You Been" by Kathy Mattea, struck her so sadly.  If you haven't heard the song, be aware, the song is sad.  https://youtu.be/pv1nTsxNWJ4

I can't seem to figure out how to listen to the podcast, but I will work on it. The link worked great, but for some reason (I'm sure it is me) I can't make it play. Such a techie!

Bag Blog, I am not a techie either. iTunes play them automatically for me on the computer. I have an app on my phone and iPad. Joanna talks about how the song reminds her of my mom and how she didn't recognize Joanna after her Alzheimers took over. You have heard the song, right? Anyway, teary eyes when listening....

I've just started listening to podcasts, can put them on and work at the same time. most of the ones I listen to are youtubers I like, movie or sci fi related


20 bucks well spent if it has lasted this long :)

Jennifer Rose, I like podcasts but forget to listen.

I can't believe the coffee pot/ expresso thing is still working. Holds the steam, and poofs it out. I forget to use it, too. Guess I'm just forgetful. : )
