Hunting and Visiting

I have to use Gene's computer to blog and post my photos and sketches here.  Blogger is getting fussy, I suppose.  If I continue painting, I will move to, easier and less hassle.  Another thing is there is no more iPhoto on Gene's computer.  It is now Photos like on the phone and iPad.  This means I can't resize photos without another app to do so.  Muy aggravating!

So here I am on Gene's MacBook while he is riding his trike.  It is pretty warm, but he says he makes his own breeze.

For Scavenger Hunt 557

Number 5, natural - pecans on tree with watercolor and ink.

Number 6 metal, rack and utensils and pan
Number 7 plastic - handles and spoons
Number 8 kitchen item - tortilla keeper

Today I sketched on the iPad.  Jeepers, it took almost an hour on ArtStudio.  Art studio has the capacity to resize photos by pixels so I bought it to be able to do that.  It was $5 so worth it and I can paint right in the app.  Joe from the Scavenger Hunts recommended it and Robin told him.  Works well.  It doesn't work on the phone, so have to send photos from phone to iPad to Gene.  Sigh.....

For Scavenger Hunt 558
Number 1 and 2, open and closed.  Roger's last rose of summer it looks like.

Posting gets so hard on the road sometimes. When I was in Porto I couldn't get to work for me at all on my iPad. You did a lot of nice sketches. I like the digital one a lot.

Jennifer Rose, I love my Apple stuff am just stuck in the dark age mode. Don’t like not having stuff in my computer. With rural lack of internet it is hard to update and have to be online to do stuff.
Yep, Digi stuff takes longer, also takes longer to post than to create. Sigh...
