We're expecting a fairly significant snowstorm this morning --- here in North Carolian piedmont, 1"-3" and ice is pretty severe! -- and so I collected our oil lamps in the event we lose power -- a fairly common event in times of storms.

While insuring that their bowls were filled with enough oil, I quickly sketched one for my daily practice.

You did such a great job with the ellipses and the transparency of the glass, Lin. And so glad you're well prepared for our big blizzard ; D.

Oh very nice Lin. You are doing very well depicting glass/shiny objects lately. This is great, particularly the ellipses and like Laura said, the transparency too. Well done. Hope you stay warm and dry there! Gee I'd like to be cool and wet about now...we're desperate for rain again. Send some our way if you can!!

I love the way you always find art!! Taking the time to sketch and paint this in the midst of getting prepared for a storm is amazing. AND. . . you did a great job on it - wonderful shape and transparency!!

Very well done Lin. I love the way the oil shines at the bottom!

Greast job on the glass reflections! I hope you don't have to use it but if you do, then you can sketch it with the flame.
