Arizona Ranch Sketches

Today I get to tell you who is the winner in the drawing for the gift cards. I’ll tell you at the end of this post.

I promised more sketches from my sketchbook of our time in Arizona. We had such a grand time there. So warm and sunny. Here you go!

Inside this building is the wonderful smell of leather, horse sweat and dust.

Lovely views on the drive up Box Canyon Road…

I took two sketchbooks with me to Arizona. One is a sweet little 5″ x 5″ hardbound one made by Hand Book. I like it because it is small and there is the option of painting on one page in a square format or horizontal in 5″ x 10″.  This is two pages. I might fill in the blank space with something like a harness or a bit…who knows?

Little sketches from the ranch in the “Hand Book”.

Crimson Bottle Brush bloom. I really like to paint across the page.

And the winner of the box of gift cards is…..Peggy Saunders!  I love random.com !  Peggy, you may email me at suziepaints at Yahoo dot com and send me your address and I’ll pop them right in the mail.

Next post will be more Arizona sketches. I’m remembering the sunshine during these cold, dark Alaska winter days.
