apple on a plate


Another tiny apple on an old butter plate. The pattern is related to the pattern on plates I remember from visiting my grandparents in the summer when I was young. I found it at a consignment shop or flea market, and it has been on my dresser holding change and odd earring backs for the past year. Dusted off now, it's headed to the kitchen cupboard. I have a weakness for odd china. And single chairs - but that's another entry.

Your drawings are beautiful and always inspire me to get off my duff and draw. Thanks for sharing them.

Liz, this is simply (in both senses of the word) beautiful. I love glimpses of things just as they float out of sight---your work is full of such images.

Oh, I understand the weakness for odd china and single chairs, too. And especially, for some reason, if they have red in them. This is wonderful!

Thank you.

Cin, scroll down for a couple of odd chairs (from other people's houses), and for one from my house, you might look at my February archives - I think I drew my desk chair sometime during that month.

Linda, I can resist red, but blue... not at all. It just wants to come home with me.
