Hey this is a fun idea...sketching things like this kind of got me going. I have not actually gone to the real sketching yet...but I am interested. I hope I will later this week. I like the Chandelier best I think. I need to used the sketching to recenter after my busy first week on the new job.

I don't know how I missed your first post on vintage drawing, but this is a great idea! I definitely want to take this on this week! Thanks for the inspiration!

Time is sooooo limited lately, but this idea has really intrigued me. I think I might make time for some art today - even if it's just a quick sketch. Thanks for the inspiration, Tammy! Hugs, Terri xoxo

*Diane, I'm enchanted with chandeliers as well, let me know if it proves to be a good subject!
*Verna, I look forward to hearing whether the lines in these photographs were fun to sketch.
*Terri, A quick sketch is of course better than no sketch.
