Scavenger Hunt 407

The new hunt (lasting till June 6th) started today - Hunt 407

I will update the thread with the rest of the drawings along the way!

I like to choose objects for the hunts that have meaning or memories attached to them. Looking back over my sketchbooks, they are like journals of people, places and things, full of memories and associations.

We used the erasers in this drawing for game pieces when the kids were young and they still hold memories of a phase in our lives. I'm glad to have included them in my visual journal at last.

Scavenger Hunt 405

The new Scavenger Hunt is on...

I combined 3 items in one drawing..... I snapped the pic quickly with the tablet in low light, so it is not the best...but it is convenient ;)

and 2 more in this one. That stapler dates back from my high school days. They used to make things that last.

and one more for now...a fun gift from a friend who knows I like large mugs and anything with 'snow'

Unfortunately the black ink bled into the pink of the flower. The flowers are so light in colour that they seem to be white.

I like to draw everyday objects I use all the time...

Butternuts have really quirky shapes. One only really notices this when you start to draw them.

And that's all I managed for this hunt...a baker's dozen. On to Hunt #406

For future hunts, I think I will collect all the pictures and make one post per hunt. Easier I think and nicely collected in one place too.

More Sketches

Same hunt, more sketches... I've been taking pictures for these instead of scanning them, hence the darker edges. Maybe I should stop being lazy....

Prints Are Now Available !

...and I found the file. That took long enough!

Now when you go to the tabs at the top of the homepage here you wcan access the different galleries with information on what original works are still available and what is available in print form. The prints come in different finishes (paper/canvas/metal/acrylic) and as 5x7 cards. All the information regarding prints can also be accessed right here

I still have more images to load here and over at the printers, so check back for updates. I will need to get working too, my inventory of originals is getting pretty low.

Better get working!

Maybe I found it?

Referring the the box with my art file information in. I was beginning to wonder if it had vapourized....when I spotted a likely candidate. It would be nice to update those pages at the top with the rest of the images and the information!

Meantime I've discovered some more Scavenger Hunt items that I did in Artrage. (all the way back in August)
I've done some in a traditional sketchbook, which I have not even scanned yet. The Hunt was over before I had unpacked the scanner. But hey! We're getting there settling back in!

This polymer clay necklace is so old, but I still love wearing it. It was one of the first I made.

And these seed pods are so pretty. They have perfectly round little black seeds in them that look like round beads.

I'm looking forward to hauling out the paper pack, trimming a piece of Stonehenge....and drawing...then again, maybe it'll be Arches and watercolours...hmmmmmm
