Days 57 and 58

It might have only been February, but I was reminiscing about warm sunny days and dreaming of summer when I'd see more. That's why I chose to sketch this conch shell. Well that and because I hadn't sketched it yet. Fewer and fewer items in my house are falling into the "haven't sketched yet" category.

Day 58 was the day of the earthquake in Chile. While I watched the news about the earthquake and the resulting tsunami threat for Hawaii, I sketched this model of an outrigger canoe that my husband and I had purchased on our first trip to the islands 14 years ago.

Jennifer, I've thought about taking a trip to the thrift shop but have resisted it. I'm hoping with the warmer weather that I actually take the time to go out and sketch. And the less I have to sketch at home the more likely I will be to actually follow through with that plan. :D
