One of the items on Scavenger Hunt 635 was/is wedding related.
No recent weddings around here. I thought of the wedding books from Jennie's (daughter) and Brandon's wedding and Christy's (granddaughter) and Nick's wedding.
They are both blue. Jennie's is turquoise blue and Christy's is navy blue.
I first thought of doing them in pastel which is the quickest for me and gives the beautiful rich color that the books have. The pastel sketches do not go into the big coffee table book which will eventually belong to Jennie. I decided to do the sketch with a Micron 02 and add colored pencils. Not as rich but fills a page in the big book.
I sketched out on the porch using my footstool for a table. Not the best way to get straight lines when bending over the stool. At least the sketch features something I haven't sketched and is in Jennie's big coffee table book.
Number 1, wedding related - wedding photo books
Larry, our son, was the wedding photographer for both weddings. His gift to the couples. The books are beautiful with some great memories inside.
Larry is not normally a wedding photographer. He leans toward sports and action photos. You can check out his great work. He is available to take some great photos for you at:

Happy news today. We are great grandparents to a lovey baby girl, Mariam. She weighed in at 9 pounds, 7 ounces. She wins the prize for the largest baby in our immediate family. She has two brothers so good she will be tough. Ha. Also two cousins that are boys. Do you think she will be spoiled?

I closed my pages on facebook, instagram and twitter. I am very discouraged with the tone of the posts in general. Mostly though, I do not like the way that the media servers or whatever they are decide on what I should see. If a friend doesn't post often enough, they are gone from my feed until I search them out. Then I get what "they" decide is relevant to me and it isn't. You will have to keep following my blog and sign up for my newsletter on my webpage https://jocastilloart.com
I may try to be more active on Pinterest for a while and see how that goes.
Thanks for reading here. I do appreciate it and love talking art and fun!
