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.
