Stuff and More Stuff

"Up From the Earth"
10" x 8"
colored pencil

Here's a small colored pencil drawing that I just finished. I had started on it much earlier this year, but it's been sitting in a drawer until I pulled it out last Friday and started back to work on it. My larger hydrangea drawing is on hold until we get to the new house. The move starts next week and I'm trying to get really serious with the packing. I've discovered that I really should clean out cabinets more often than just when we move. It's kind of amazing to find how much of the same exact stuff you can end up with. For example, way back in the kitchen cabinets, I found three boxes (800 count each) of toothpicks. I've made a mental note to never buy toothpicks again. We have enough to last a lifetime. And in the bathrooms - would you believe that we have 7 bottles of sunscreen?

Thanks Maria! I just visited your two blogs. Especially enjoyed the "Old Timers" series. Nice work! Loved the students' collage projects also.
