Sketching on Hunt 548 and SW Challenge

The travel deadline is looming but I can procrastinate with the best of them.  Sketching was a sure way to keep from packing my art stuff.  I sketched in the big coffee table book with a Prismacolor 08 pen.

First for the Southwest Forum Monthly Challenge for July, from a photo provided by Kay.  It would be nice to do a painting for that group, but no time to paint today.

For Scavenger Hunt 548 http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1450310
Number 1, animal - sub animal crackers.  Gene got them at Trader Joe's.  The container is too small or the cookies are too big, take your choice.
Number 2, taste neutral - as opposed to salty or sweet, a glass of milk

It was a beautiful morning in our neighborhood.

There is a flag on the pole in the middle, but no breeze.  Pretty light coming through, it had rained a little earlier.

Ooh, try capturing that light in a painting.

Bag Blog, yeah, I know. It is so pretty toward the little lakes with the light through the trees. I keep trying, one of these days.....
