Here are some sketches from our annual Fiber Retreat in Lawrence, Kansas. We had an awesome time as usual. The first sketch shows Jeannine in her arm brace, resting after some spindling.
Here is Karin Spinning in the doorway of the parlor at our bed and breakfast. Below is a sketch of the cone yarns I brought for her scarf project.
Last is a sketch of Lynn spinning in her pink lace scarf.

This is the weekly painting challenge, a white object on a patterned ground using only primary and secondary colors and white. Palette for this one is Titanium White, Lemon Yellow, Cadmium Yellow, Cadmium Orange, Cerulean Blue, Cobalt Blue, Ultramarine Blue, Dioxazine Violet and Permanent Green Light.
Frankoma Pottery is made with red clay here in Oklahoma and this red under color tends to show through the glazes making it interesting to paint as the glaze is translucent.

This is not a subject that I would normally choose but what a painting workout it turned out to be. Only Burnt Sienna, Ultramarine Blue and Titanium White so the whole painting relies on values and temperature changes obtained with those three colors.

This painting shows Mack standing on the bridge to the old Tulsa Zoo entrance in Mohawk Park. We had been at the Zoo all day and were leaving about 5:30 pm and what struck me about the scene was the evening sky rolling in and the warm glow it cast on such a cold grey day. I tried to get the feel of it.

Here are my 10 Minute Eggs, this is a 6x8 inch oil on canvas. I divided the canvas into 6 sections and painted the same egg in each section setting a timer for each one for 10 minutes. Total time for the whole painting 60 minutes. I did change the color of the cloth under the egg, it's position and the lighting. This was done based on the Daily Painting Weekly Challenge Group. I am going to include a link in my areas of interest.

I have been doing a series of Notans and Value Study paintings for my work at Virtual Art Academy. The Notans are quick one to three inch studies done with a brush pen and the Value paintings are mostly 6 x 8 inch oils on canvas paper, except for the last one which is 6 inch square. I think I am learning alot by doing these and may have a couple from this selection that grow up to become paintings at some point.

Saturday was another beautiful day so we went to the park. Here is my bike loaded with essentials, lunch and art supplies.
On Friday we had a high temperature of the low 70's and we celebrated by going for a short hike in the Keystone Dam area. It has been years since we have been on this trail and I had forgotten how beautiful it is there. I sat and did this sketch while Mack went back to the car to get extra camera batteries. We had a wonderful time and both took some great pictures.

Here is my second oil painting of a scene I pass when I walk the Bixby Trail. I have seen it in every season and this is mid October. We have had a very dry fall and winter here. Even though I did not paint this outside it is a view I know well and I have sketched frequently in this area in pencil, pen and watercolor. Oil on board 6x8".

Mack and I went to the Tulsa Zoo yesterday to participate in the international sketchcrawl. Of course he had the camera and I had the sketchbook. It was about 11:30 am when we arrived and cold but at least it was not crowded. We started with the Chimps and worked our way through the exhibits. Here are some of the first sketches I did.
