EDM #21: Draw something old, antique or vintage
You won't believe how long I have procrastinated. It's kind of ridiculous. EDM #20 was posted in September. That's a long time. Yet the idea of finding something old or vintage to draw was in the back of my mind. I wanted to find just the right thing, the perfect thing. I could have made the St. Marks Square drawing count for my "something old" but darn it, I drew it in another journal and I'd already written the headings for the next 20 or so EDMs in this moleskine.

So I forced myself to draw on a Friday morning at a cafe. The kids had a half day of school and it was a perfect opportunity to draw. So I got a blueberry scone, a banana and a 3-shot cappuccino and sat down to draw. I looked around and saw some frames on the wall and considered those perhaps retro... but settled on 2 red sparkly patent leather stainless steel stools sitting nearby. The legs were intertwined, or so it seemed. It doesn't take long to feel out of practice, unfortunately. It felt wonky. But I'm so happy I got over this hurdle.
