Mountain Sketching

I disappeared again.  Now you know that is normal for me.  If I don't sketch or paint, not much to talk about.  The new Scavenger Hunt 508 had 'mountain' on the list so that gave me an opportunity to sketch in the big book from the porch/deck.

Number 1, mountain - I took the photo so that you can see it is about half a page in the big book.  How to show the ski slope was interesting, maybe I could use dots.  It would take forever, though, and I'm not into forever on a sketch.

I missed the sunrise this morning, but still got a nice photo.  A bit different angle than my sketch.

It was 49 when we got up and is supposed to get to 75 today.  Family arriving tomorrow evening.  Today is a catch up day to get ready.  As usual we have clutter!  Amazing that the two of us can clutter a place in a few minutes!

hmuxo, thank you, thank you. We live in clutter and straighten up for the housecleaners and company!

Jennifer Rose, we walk in and set our suitcases down and instant clutter as soon as any bag or box is opened.
