Another mini-pumpkin by "mom" - this time a drawing in Sanguine chalk on Canson's Mi-Teintes pastel paper (smooth side). She has a collection of these little gourds and pumpkins (pompoen - plural form is pompoenen) ... she buys too many each year and she keeps them! All dried out and faded, but she won't throw them away.

She'd be so mad at me if I kept all of my dried out mice & frogs, wouldn't she?!?!? Hmmmm...maybe I can convince her that they'd be good to draw too! heh heh.

Doei! (bye)

Note: The pumpkin was drawn from life ... they sit on my desk under my lamp as I like the look of strong, well defined shadows. :o) ~ Judy

uhmm,tagged again *sigh*. Thanks, but no thanks. Don't have time for this. Don't have much to list either - We both hate boerenkol and we both still miss our Finn, so that pretty much does it for a list of things to know about us.
doei
