Quick kitchen sketch...the morning after turkey day!


With everyone still asleep this morning following Thanksgiving, Doozey and I are sitting here together on the couch drinking coffee and wondering about the day! The light started to stream into my kitchen window, and I suddenly felt the urge to do a quick sketch of the scene. The tiny Christmas tree as the focal point, with a little brown angel made from seed pods and a golf tee for a trumpet, being the focal point. I love waking up to the little glowing tree that I leave on all night (thanks to LED lights)...it emparts such joy and happiness!

Here is the view from my couch, into my tiny little kitchen with the sun streaming in. It is a scene of hope and peace for me. Happy Black Friday everyone!!!

I have always had a "thing" for the serene glow of sunlight in a kitchen! I see it only rarely in my own because my window faces the north, and besides my kitchen is usually way to messy to be serene.

But I have a photo of the kitchen-sunlight in my old house, and my mom's house, and I enjoy seeing other peoples' kitchens.

HI Julie
Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. Nice sketch. Must be fun having Doozey for company :). Sounds like a nice little angel... which reminds me - it's present shopping/making time!

Have a nice weekend, Ev

Well done, Julie....I LOVE your sketch and you also created a beautiful, ambient mood with your words.

I had to google Black Friday to see what it was as we sometimes refer to Friday 13th as Black Friday. lol

I love the ribbons and stars on your border of your blog page.
Not being a Christmas person myself I send you good wishes for that holiday now and hope you get much enjoyment from your little tree.

Nothing like a lap full of Doosey, sketching, a bit of sunshine and a cuppa to start the day off right.

Oh Julie, this sketch is just darling. It really made me happy. I am trying to learn to draw and it's SO hard! I love your lines and vision. I just love everything about this sketch. So glad you took the time to do it and to share it here. Thank you!
