EDiJ #18

EDiJ #18 Draw something that may have another name in a different region.  Purse/Handbag/Bag is also called a "poke".  I even Googled it to make sure.  My aunt used to say she "put something in a poke."  And there is a saying "A pig in a poke".  Of course I'd hate to see a poke large enough to hold a pig. 

I have been keeping up with the Every Day in June entries.   I have done 16 of the 18 Black & White ATCs for the trade on Wetcanvas.  And since I don't have enough to do, I signed to do 75 Days Drawing in Pen and Ink.  Any subject and any size.  So far I have done 3 of those.

I am trying to fit anything I do for these projects with the scavenger hunts.  But it has to fit a subject on the list and has to be drawn from life. 

I just finished cleaning several areas on my carpet.  With pets around, there is always something that needs cleaning.  Now I have things like baby gates all over to keep the dogs out of the cleaned areas until they dry.  Not too bright on my part to start this at 5pm.  But with high 90s and triple digits, it doesn't take long for things to dry.  Trying to keep things like the clothes you are wearing dry is the hard part.  I don't move around much during those really hot days.  Good excuse for watching tv and doing artwork.
