Raisins


Raisins
Originally uploaded by linfrye.
I was hungry for something sweet after all the holiday cookies, so I went to the local coffee shop for a couple of biscotti. I bought myself two -- one to eat and one to sketch. When I got back to my desk, though, I began to feel guilty so I decided to eat these raisins while I sketched the box, leaving the biscotti to sketch today.

But then,

The biscotti just seemed to CALL ME, and well, there won't be a sketch of it --- because I just HAD to eat it!

Mercy!

Love your sketch of the raisin box.

And, yum, I would love to eat a biscotti right now!!

You made the right choice ;D. Raisins are MUCH more important as a subject for drawing, so you had to eat the biscotti! Lovely sketch!

Lin,
Love those raisins. How did you get them to look so real and delicious?

Much more interesting sketch subject - this lovely box of raisins!

LOL! Wonderful job on this box of raisins - and truly, it was more of a drawing challenge than a biscotti anyway!

The drawing is wonderful--very victorian looking to me. I could so relate to the story about the biscotti. The last time I saved one for later my cat stole it and ate most of it!

Ha! That's hilarious. I'm surprised it lasted that long. LOL. It wouldn't have lasted at all here - no chance. :o)
