Thanks Ai

Jo -nice sketches but I really think you should practice pastels more.😎

Number9, take care. Follow nurses orders. They are usually better at what to do than the doctors 😂

Scatty - Thank you. Oooh such lovely colours on those art supply (?) drawers. I see you have a studio mascot in the photo too With "up" ears : ) A jaw bone - cool!! Ah those plum blossoms are wonderful

Ai - good luck with the downsizing

Joe - good job on the stainless travel coffee mug

Jo - what were you guys needing at the hardware store? And what do they sell at Schlotsky's?

number9 - sorry to hear you are unwell. Hope it gets all sorted soon.

number9 — I'm so sorry that you're in hospital. Hang in there, and be well Let us know how you're doing

Ai — Your art supplies and poem make me happy! I can't help but collect art supplies too. And a lot of my art space is taken up by stuff from the stores you mentioned. I love stores like Lowes and Ace, etc., also! I've found amazing stuff there for art. My most recent find was at Home Depot a few days ago. They had a rough textured tread that I'm cutting up into pieces. I'm planning to use it to texture acrylic mediums as well as polymer clay. Apparently "normal" people glue it to their stairs or something. But I see everything in the hardware stores through "art eyes" Here's a pic:
https://www.homedepot.com/p/3M-Safet...68NA/100391699

Jo — Well... at least the paper was put to good use again Another evocative image. I agree with Ai and Joe about your beautiful 3D pots. And the mystery of the scene beyond is compelling. As for "straight" lines - in my opinion, they are "required" only if you want them to be. Lovely sketches also from out on the town. So many surfaces and textures, beautifully differentiated. ~~~~~ Thanks for hosting a fun event!

Scatty — Amazing drawers - they made me curious as well I love both your sketch and photo - look at those ears in front 🐾 And your painting of tree blossoms is wonderfully delicate! I love that you chose trees over a ring. Think what our planet would be like if we all planted trees as part of our marriages.

Joe — Terrific coffee mug - your signature deep contrast and lovely sheen. Fantastic dissipation in the shadow as well. P.S., Yup, I finally remembered the DVD It was an episode of Stargate called "Window of Opportunity" where there was a device with blocks that they pushed in different sequences to try to achieve a result. I found a pic online of a corner of the device. But it's only a portion, and at an odd angle. but somehow your grid apparently reminded me of the device in the show. Anyway here's a link...

Re: Scavenger Hunt #582: Apr 2 - 10

Pine Cone -I see the grid, but it bows my mind the way you ‘visually’ associate. You look at something in someone’s art and it visually triggers you to an artist with similar style or composition or something you have seen. My mind only seems to do that if I work at it.

Joe

Re: Scavenger Hunt #582: Apr 2 - 10

number9?, wow, hope you feel better and get that straightened out. We are thinking of you and waiting for your return.

Thanks, Ai. We spend lots of time at Lowe's, Gene is always doing something. I think we were there for a latch for the storm door out of the laundry room.

Joe, I do need practice with pastels or at least painting quickly outside. Fingers crossed for the paint out coming up.

EP, Schlotsky's is a sub/sandwich shop that opened in Austin about 30 years ago. They bake their own bread, the signature sub has ham, swiss, onions and black olives as I recall. They have branched out around the country and have added soups, pizza, sweet rolls and salads. It is yummy and super fresh.

Pine Cone, you make my art into more than it is. Thanks for sharing! I'm smiling.

This Hunt had Robin's list, Thanks for joining in, see all y'all next Hunt.
