Re: Scavenger Hunt #243 - Oct 26 - Nov 3

I sketched yesterday afternoon here at the RV park in the regular old brown paper sketchbook with the same Prismacolor Premier pen.

Number 1, hand with the challenge of both hands. My sketching was so off that you can't tell much difference between the two. I'm right handed in case you can't tell. Ha.


Number 2, owie - my bruise where they drew blood. I always bruise and they struggle to get the blood out.


Number 3, water - the little lake here. Windy and no ducks.


Number 4, plant - some ground cover by the entrance to the park. Very bright apple green color and lots of it. I could have spent an hour on that. Ha.


EP, first up and great hands. I can't tell if you are left or right handed. Great job.

Joan, intense eyes! Love the plant.

Hi Lisa.

Ai, oh my, so hard to be away from home and not on vacation. Very difficult with the girls. I feel for you. Your sketches made me smile, so hope you relaxed when you did them, too. Strong helping hands.

Hi, Lin.

Thanks again, "J" for hosting. I'm glad I got some done. I have been "shopping" mostly on line. So much easier for the most part. Some things you just have to see in person, but I can order kitchen stuff, etc. The UPS guy asked if we were Christmas shopping early. He brought 11 boxes and FEDEX brought 2. We made a trip to the storage to put the things away. All the stuff in the boxes fit in two boxes except the stool and electric skillet. Don't know why they ship them separately. Guess they just ship from each company. Seems a waste, but maybe it is more to store in a big warehouse somewhere. Sigh.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #243 - Oct 26 - Nov 3

Jeanne - Thanks.

Ai - Glad to hear all is well! Hope you get to return home soon. Nice hand digis!

EP - Thank you.

Jo - That's a mega bruise. Nice water view and plant cover sketch.

This is the first time I've been home since Thursday evening, so I have no sketches to post. I spent the time since then with 2 girlfriends and we went off on a shopping/fall foliage day yesterday. They both live about 2 hours from me so I stayed over Thursday and Friday nights. It was good to visit with them, but they are not artists so no artwork was created at all. lol

Thanks all for kind comments.

Jo: Great job for your sketches.
Lin: Hello.
J: Thanks. Lily is sending a big kiss ;-)
EP: Thanks.

It looks like we are looking at one more week before the water will arrive at our home and workplace area. We are still checking info. with our Univ. daily and hope to get back in a week. The girls are doing fine except keeping Tone and I busy.

The Internet of our hotel seems to have connection in the past three days. I am writing this post at my friend's other hotel.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #243 - Oct 26 - Nov 3

Joan I especially like your denim and wallet. so realistic.

Kivrin nice job. Especially like your hand.

Halloween would have been my 41st wedding anniversary so I was a little sad today. Much better than last year tho. It's that time of year that I just want to get thru. Ending with the anniversary of the day my husband passed. The next few months I'm sure he will be in my thoughts a lot. But as I said, this year is much easier than last year.

I finally got to take my "Coffee" painting to the shop where it will hang for the month of November. The art assoc hung 13 paintings there today. I got a pretty good spot if they don't move it. You can now see the painting on my blog. But like a dummy, I agreed to help maintain the members list for the assoc. Like I needed something else to do. They tried to give me two more jobs (all volunteer) but such as it is...I do have a life. I would like to enjoy it. lol

The official opening for the coffee show will be Friday night from 6-8. I think that is when they pick the winners. It is my first time to show a watercolor.

I also got 2 more celeb sketches done in my 2012 Sketchbook. Still have to add color. So far I have Mama Harper from Mama's family (Vickie Lawrence), Elvis, Lucille Ball as Lucy and all those have had watercolor added. The two sketches are of "Half Pint/Laura Ingalls from Little house on the Prairie or Melissa Gilbert and Barney Fife/Don Knotts. They are posted on my Facebook site.
