Artsomofo #4

Acrylic in the 12x12 sketchbook. Started out playing with color, then used it as a background for scavenger hunt 197. The "bear hug" picture was from my birthday. Color's off but I just don't have daylight time to take a proper photo, so it's an indoor photo.

Sketchcrawl #29

It was rainy Saturday. If I hadn't stuff to do, I probably wouldn't have gone out at all. First stop of the day was to Midas to get my truck measured for a head gasket. Then I got a set of fat sharpies and a new box for it. For some reason I've been wanting to draw with fat lines lately.
I drew it over lunch with Mom at a Chinese/fusion restaurant...with the new sharpies.After a few a couple shops, we settled in the a bookstore cafe for my last sketch.

Oh, we did go one more place...Sam's Club to develop some pictures. I didn't sketch there, though. Went home and spent the rest of the day wrestling with wi-fi/computer issues.

Artsomofo #2

Started out with a rainbow, it turned into sunflowers. I electronically cropped the 12x12 inch original. Acrylics. The picture's not fuzzy, I used a fat brush to paint it.

Chayote Squash

Like the last post, this is acrylic paints in a 12x12 inch handmade sketchbook Mom made years years ago. It's not great paper, not acid free and it's already yellowed and brittle. I also used it as an item in this week's scavenger hunt.

Scavenger Hunt 194

An unfinished page with items from Scavenger Hunt 194 at Wetcanvas, hosted by Jeanne. I've been inspired this week. Took a couple days to prepare the squares before I could paint the items in.
