Feeling a bit reckless but happy, I signed up for the Slice of Life Story Challenge 2016. Today is Day One. For some reason, I feel compelled to do a Show and Tell.
Most mornings, unless I have to be somewhere else, I like to sit down at my desk with the first cup of coffee of the day and start sketching something. Nothing planned, just me and a pencil and a sheet of paper.
Whatever catches my eye is fair game. A bit of whimsy sets the right tone for the day!
I had an early class this morning, so didn’t have time to sketch. This is from yesterday. I had set up a Still Life the day before and put most of the things away. But these guys looked so cozy that they drew me in.
The scribbles to the right, if you cannot make them out, are: “There was something about the vase that inspired confidence, so it was that they talked all through that strange first evening that they met.”
