Hunt 575 Sketches

Hard to follow up a skull painting..... I sketched in the big book with a Micron 01.  Quickly and free hand as usual and as you can tell. 

For Scavenger Hunt 574  http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1460723

 I used the skull for Number 3, discipline - it take discipline to paint and learn

Above is Number 4, delicious treat - we are hoping the candy is delicious, we bought it for a fundraiser and haven't tried it yet.  We shall see.

Number 5, Popsicle or something used to cool you down if it's warm outside - Blue Bell ice cream.  The little bowl is a Christmas bowl that made it through the fire.  It was red and green.  The green is now black and some of the red is coming back.  I would have sketched the ice cream for something delicious as it definitely is.  If you can't read what I put, here it is:  Blue Bell Ice Cream is made from the milk from happy cows.  We eat all we can and sell the rest!

My favorite flavor is butter pecan ... or white chocolate almond ... or pecan praline ... or  ...   Their  Neopolitan flavor is the only one I have ever seen that has real strawberries in the strawberry part.  It is made in Brenham, Texas, about 50 miles from us.  Blue Bell Ice Cream is outstanding!!!  Check out where you can buy it and all the flavors  https://www.bluebell.com/our-products/  I see a couple of new ones we haven't tried that sound great.  Moo-llinneum Crunch and Butter Crunch 

I took this photo out back yesterday with the panoramic setting on my iPhone.  The left pond is the easterly one and the other to the right is the westerly pond.  It was warm and humid.  Misty all day.

We picked up Jennie to go to Larry's early Birthday dinner in Austin.  I did not take any photos.  I think Joanna took some.  It is supposed to be in the 40s again on the weekend.  Jennie's  roses are blooming and beautiful.  Crazy....

You are too cruel...now I'm craving ice cream which I haven't had in a long time.The flavors and sketches are great!

Joan, I know how it is with ice cream. We don't have any for ages and then we get some and really enjoy it. There is a small bit I have to eat before we leave on a trip. Glad you reminded me. I try to have some out away from home and then don't have any extra on hand. :-) Thanks on the sketches.

I don't buy ice cream often, because we go through it so fast. Last summer we bought Blue Bell Key Lime Mango Tart! Delicious!

Bag Blog, we usually do ice cream for birthdays. Too good. I havent tried that flavor either. Hmmm.
