Blackberries, cream cheese and one single bite.

“I think that I do feel that my nature is to express what this self, this particular self at this time, experiences in the world. And that is so organic – I use this metaphor a lot but I’ll use it again – it’s like a pine tree producing pine cones, or a blackberry bush producing blackberries – it’s just what happens with this being, now. ” —-Alice Walker

To eat some of your food before you sketch it or wait…..that is the question.

Well, I couldn’t resist, so one might note the bite taken out of the top left corner.  Delicious!  This week in the online sketch class I am taking, we are focusing on drawing our meals in restaurants.  Food is one of my favorite subjects, so this was a fun challenge for the week.

This was a quick sketch done in about 20 minutes during my lunch hour at one of my favorite local bakeries, the Rocket Bakery. Amazing what things can be squeezed in during the day!

Cheers to keeping the momentum of sketching daily.
