Very productive day


I had a productive day today. I joined the Photo Scavenger Hunt at WC and posted 15 of the items. I took the pictures here in the house. It was fun trying to find things to snap that fit the different categories.

I have been wanting to go to the local mall gallery. It is an Art Association. I wanted to check into joining.

Well today I browsed their website and found they have a plein air group. I talked to the lady who keeps it organized, and I hope to join them next Wednesday. The journey will be at a private home with beautiful gardens. I will go tomorrow and join the organization. It will be nice to be a part of the art community and to have a group to share some art time.

The weekend of the 28th, I will be at a 3-day weekend barbecue. It is an annual get together on a cattle ranch in the mountains. There will be motorhomes, campers, tents (15-20 of them) camping on the property. Musicians, good food, lots of people, more food, and many dogs. I usually take pictures of all the dogs so I can draw them.

We go on the Saturday. We make a whole day of it. That is the day of the potluck. Everyone brings a salad or chip and dips and a dessert. The hosts provide meat, bread, and a pot of beans. Fun is had by all.

There are many musicians who are very good. They sit in and sit out as they have the urge. It will be a sketching and photo opportunity.

In the past I have only taken pictures, but this year I want to do some life drawings. Especially the musicians. They sit for long periods. I hope to find an out-of-the-way spot but will probably have trouble staying out of the way as most people there know that I draw.

Latest items for the scavenger hunt.

Painting in plein aire with a group sounds so inviting...and in gardens no less. Lucky you! I'll be coming back to see what you do there. I've thought about doing the scavenger hunt at WetCanvas, but I always seem to notice it after they've done it. Nice job on the sketches.

Jeanne - so good to hear that you've found a group to join. I'm sure you'll enjoy plein air work as part of a group. I think it's one of the nicest things to do. Especially when you get to the bit at the end where you've all sat and drawn the same thing and you take a look at what everybody's done and they all look different!!!
