Sitting cozy in my red chair this evening after a cold and busy day, our dining table and chairs looked pretty ordinary, and a fitting subject for this week's drawing challenge as proposed by the amazing Kristen.
We enjoyed a really fine Thanksgiving feast right here day before yesterday.

The every day objects in my home are comforting in their familiarity. Drawing such objects is a way of seeing them more clearly. The time spent observing and moving pencil across paper is a mediation, a wander back in time through the magic of memory.
How many meals together at this table?
How many more?
At Kristen's Sunny Spot you can take a look at the interpretation of this theme as presented by an extra-ordinary group of artists from all over the world. I'm headed over there now, myself.
Wishing you all a glorious Advent.
