Sketching for the Hunt and More

It was time to get back to the Scavenger Hunts.  I got out the big book yesterday and today and sketched with the Micron 05.  I did put a bit of color with pencils on the sketch yesterday so you could tell the food items apart.  Not sure if it helped.

For Scavenger Hunt 506  http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1431790

Number 4 yummy - sandwich, Number 5 salty - potato chips, Number 6 spicey - olives, Number 7, round/circle - plate
Number 8, with legs - leather topped table from Peru
Number 9, square - CD in cover, almost square.  We went to La Grange to the Bugle Boy last night and saw Jane Ellen Bryant, beautiful voice and good writer.  She gave out a free CD with a single song on it if you signed up on her mailing list.  Thanks, Jane Ellen.

It was a good show. It was a sing around with Jane Ellen, Jaimee Harris and Tom Meny.  Very entertaining.

Art Connections Gallery is going to move to La Grange in September.  I need to take my 4 paintings down Monday and then paint something new for the opening in La Grange.  It will be interesting.  Very sad for Bastrop.  The building is being bought by the lawyers next door so Main Street is losing a shopping place here.  Art Connections has so many different types of gifts.

In the meantime, I was trying to figure how to take the big sketchbook with us so I can sketch some different things in it from the Scavenger Hunts.  I asked Gene to look for a box (we have lots of Amazon boxes) and he came back with a computer case a friend gave him.  It is perfect.  The book just fits in it, with room for pens and other things.  Even my iPad if I wanted it in there.  So I will be taking the huge sketchbook.  Thanks, Gene.

The sandwich looks yummy. I took four paintings down to our Chisholm Trail Arts Council building for their yearly open house. I ordered my frames from Art to Frames. I thought they were pretty reasonable - came with glass!

Bag Blog, thank you. The sandwich was yummy! Gene had gone to Austin for his brain tests. (Yes, he has one.) I tried to get a tuna sandwich in town, didn't, long story. Anyway, I had to have one when I got home. It was very hard to sketch before eating!!!

I haven't heard of Art to Frames, will check it out. I usually use framesbymail.com
