Gumballs


Gumballs

Yesterday was one filled with what seemed like endless errands -- library, grocery store, finding small gifts for the grands' Easter, and car maintenance. In my effort to simply 'sketch what was before me,' this gumball machine in the waiting room of Toyota turned out to be my sketch subject!

Truthfully, I haven't seene one of these in years -- let alone added my $.25!!! to the collection! I remember when gumballs were a penny!

Oh that brings back memories -- a penny for me too -- and that was a rare treat -- not as good as red licorice -- but a lot more fun to turn insert the penny and turn the dial! Great job, as usual!

Oh, this is colourful! It brings back memories for me too. I used to get ridiculously excited about such machines when I was a child.

What a great everyday sketch. Good choice and neat sketch.

Wonderful job, Lin - my memory is the ones that had the occasional "prize" and my most coveted prize was the pocket knife - LOL! I was SUCH a tomboy!! Thanks for the whimsical subject and the walk down memory lane.

Great fun finding the gumball machine Lin! :0) I know, nothing is cheap any more! Waaaaa! Heheheh! Your flowers, lone iris, blood orange, all beautiful! The bowl! You have been a busy sketcher my dear! Love it all!
Hugs,
Patti

How funny that you should draw this (and you did a great job!) We have a gumball machine at home (I know - but how can you resist???) and I was going to pull it out and fill it up to do a painting of it. Hmmm... great minds must truly think alike...

:-D Sounds like you've had a busy Saturday, and were very productive to fit in this sketch. Your diligence continues to be an inspiration!
