Hunt 525 Sketches

A quick post for the records...

Scavenger Hunt 525

We went to dinner at the Front Room in Smithville last night so sketched in my small sketchbook I carry in my purse.  Today we went to the Post Office and to get a few groceries, oh and have breakfast.  Sketched in the same sketchbook with a Micron 01 that ran out of nib and ink so is now trash!  I haven't thrown away nearly as many pens as you might think.  The ink lasts a long time in the marker pens.

Number 12, candle or candle holder - both, the candleholder is a glass with pieces of wine corks and a little battery candle.

Number 13, fire hydrant - substituted an air vac at Murphy's.  Sketched while Gene pumped gas.  It was outside like a hydrant, right?

 We like going to the Front Room.  They have nice easy chairs, quiet music and snack type meals.  We both had crawfish etouffee.  Very good and not a huge dinner size portion.   We had a bottle of Malbec from Argentina, maybe Diseno is the name??

I love the way you make time/find time to do sketches.

Bag Blog, thank you. The Scavenger Hunts have helped the most. The Hunts are like a teacher prodding me to my homework so the guilt drives me to sketch.
