I carried a few photos and some holiday candy with me to sketch as I waiting for my three-month car maintenance yesterday. (These scanned much darker than they really are.)
A good friend of mine gave me a wonderful vase filled with these candies. I was thinking as I sketched these that their flavor -- a bright mint -- is often so nice during dry, cold winter weather. These past weeks have been so unseasonably warm -- yesterday was almost 75F!! -- that the mind was refreshingly cool!
