We hopped onto the ferry and freeways for a trip to N. California for Thanksgiving with part of the family. This family heats their house with a Lopi stove and the sun. I took advantage of both and sketched the stove, still life's of squash from their garden and even the shadows on the porch.
|The last of the garden harvest with many baby squashes and gourds.|
|God bless the stove! It's cold this time of year in the Sierras!|
|This is Pear, no pear, because the little squash made a pear shaped shadow.|
|Initially I was going to sketch this as a black and white, but decided at the last minute to add touches of color.|
