Back in the Swing of Things

Almost back in the swing of things.  Don't you know that when you quit doing something it gets harder and harder to get back to it?  Our bodies and minds do things automatically like walking or talking.  Other things get in a routine like bedtime and wake up time.  So, after a long 10 days or so of not posting, here I go.

We are having a bit of Texas winter as well.  It was just 50 degrees F this morning so no sitting on the porch.  We used to do that.  We would go to Angel Fire or Canada and 50 degrees in the morning was great to have steaming coffee on the deck.  Guess we are too ancient for that now.  Brrrr.

I did get out the ArtStreet sketchbook and a Micron 02 and do a couple of sketches while watching TV.  That doesn't bode too well either as I watch TV and forget my plan for the sketch.  These sketches should help get back to my daily sketching or painting.

These are for Scavenger Hunt From Life 47 hosted by Joan.\

Number 1, related to travel - some maps that don't get used much anymore.

Number 2, related to relaxing - Gene, was he watching TV or napping??  He has a new motorized chair to stand him up or as he says, "To eject him!"

Our trip to Arizona and our Thanksgiving went well in Texas.  More about that later.

I Grew up in a small town , Magdalena, New Mexico. I enjoy art and the pleasure other people get from my work. I always donate some of my sales and art to charities, especially for children. That started in Bolivia with Para los Niños. (Link on sidebar) "I cannot pretend to feel impartial about colors. I rejoice with the brilliant ones and am genuinely sorry for the poor browns." -- Winston Churchill
