Days 123 and 124

Two food related sketches to share with you today and a bit of news.

First a sketch of the basil plant we bought at the farmers' market at the beginning of the season. I love using fresh basil, especially in the summer when I can pair it with fresh, local tomatoes. YUM!

Then a sketch of some salty pretzels - the perfect late night snack. Even better when paired with some ice cream.

And now onto the news...
After much deliberation, I decided to end my sketch-a-day project at the six month mark instead of continuing it for a full year. So I completed my last project sketch on June 30th. I guess that makes it a Project 181 instead of a Project 365.

I will continue to share the project sketches until I have posted them all. I appreciate all of the support I've received here and plan to summarize my thoughts on what this project taught me after you have seen all of the sketches.

shame you are stopping but it can be pretty hard to find 365 things to draw. you've done some really nice sketches :D

Thanks Jennifer! One of the reasons I stopped is because when I first envisioned the project I imagined myself going out and finding sketching subjects or stopping while I was out doing my running around and squeezing a sketch in. Turns out my life is not set up for me to be able to accomplish that. So the project turned into more a task of what I could find in my house at 10 at night to sketch before I went to bed. And yes, that made it tough to find subjects!
