From the Toolbox

Gene's toolboxes came in handy for the Hunt today.  Items were found in the garage.

This a new Hunt that started a couple of days ago.  I didn't start until today, late as usual.

For Scavenger Hunt from Life 85

Number 1 - Measuring tape
Number 2 - Hammer, one from the little tool box Jennie made in shop in school.  I'll sketch the box one of these days.  We use it for framing tools, nails, wire, etc.
Number 3 - needle nose pliers - three different ones from Gene's collection

These are sketched in the BookFactory sketchbook with a Micron 02.  The color was added with Zig Millenneum pens.

It was good to get started in this Hunt, especially since I missed class with Enid and did not paint with pastels.  Maybe next project...... I also missed the Austin Pastel Society meeting on Sunday.  Where is my pastel mojo???  Pastels are my favorite medium.  Hmmmm. 

Enid Wood is such a great inspiration.  Enid is constantly learning, painting and teaching.  She is so generous with her knowledge and experience.  She paints both traditional pastel paintings and abstract.  Beautiful and fun to see in person.  Showing in Austin in a couple of places, check her website for information.

Nice sketches of the tools. You aren't really any later posting than the rest of us since the list was posted so late. I hope things are OK with Robin and that she just forgot. She has a lot on her plate.

Enjoyed viewing some of Enid's work.
