Sketches and Photos of Pretty Morning

As usual .. maybe I should not say that and just write .. you all know I am a procrastinator so you don't expect "stuff" on time.  So, I will just begin....

I sketched at the dentists office, only mentioned because that is where I was.  Nothing bad, small filling.  Anyway, I sketched in the travel sketchbook with a Micron 05 or 01.  

Remember that the items come from names of songs.  The list is on the Scavenger Hunt 513.


Number 7, Pick a Number - one couch or 9 magazine piles in a rack.

Then I waited for Gene at the chiropractors office and sketched in the same book.


Number 4, Under the Bridge
Number 6 or 9, Our House - substituting some roofs near where I was sitting, more interesting than the roof on our house, which is plain.
Number 7, Larger Than Life - pride and love of flag and country

Number 5, Red, Red Wine - from the state of Washington, Thanks, Kathy and Dan.
Number 6, Robots - Gene's little Veto with his ball.
These two sketched in the big book with a Sharpie, brush pens from Prismacolor and a Micron 01.  The numbers are wrong someplace.  I have sketched 9 items so far for the Hunt.  Hmmm.

A beautiful morning today, I haven't been getting up early enough for the pretty colors.  A fisherman and his pickup taking advantage of the day.  It was a lovely 67 degrees.  We sat on the porch and now Gene is going for a trike ride.  Maybe I will walk....

Jo, it's hard to think of you as a procrastinator; you put most of us to shame with your frequent sketching and posts. These are very clever, as your hung sketches often are. In scrolling back, I was especially taken with your "animal" sketch of Poopsie--great job.

You're moving through the list a lot faster than I am. Nice sketches...hope you walked!

Mary, thanks. It is always fun to hear from you. My sketches are often like homework and just keep me going when I'm in a funk for painting.

Joan, you do many things so I should be faster doing only sketching. I didn't walk but did my weights. More interesting to me. Need to do both though.

That's a lot of sketches. The robo dog is so funny.

Jo Castillo said...

Bag Blog, Gene has really enjoyed his dog. When we checked into hotels he would tell them he had a dog but wasn't paying and then bring in Veto! It is darned cute.

I seem to sketch about 10 every Hunt, so about one a day. Homework!
