“The Oldest Thing in Your Refrigerator” was the cue for May 12 and that was easy since there was only one old item in there: a bottle of red wine that was a gift from a vendor at work in 2010. I don’t drink red wine (a migraine trigger and I don’t like the taste anyway).  I can’t re-gift it to anyone since the label is all about the vendor, a printing company. I know red wine doesn’t belong in the fridge but that’s where it lives until I give it away or serve it to a guest who doesn’t mind a random Sonoma County chilled red wine.

May 13 was “Draw a Pillow.” These fuzzy/furry white pillows are a favorite of my calico cat Fiona who likes it when they’re stacked up so she can sit on the highest, softest place in the room like a princess.

Payless Shoes from Peets Coffee

Ink in Moleskine sketchbook (Larger)

After taking a huge load of stuff to Goodwill and the recycling center (that came from three days of reorganizing the studio, which led to cleaning out my closets, cabinets and the garage) my reward was a latte at Peets (and what feels like a fabulous new, spacious studio!).

Now that I’m nearly done with this organizing/rearranging project it was great to relax and just draw what I could see out the window while I sipped my coffee.

This is another sketch inspired by Pete Sculley’s drawings with incorporated overheard snippets of conversation. (overheard: “I know you can’t make any decisions.” “My parents are here and I can’t just send them home.”)

Next time I’ll post photos of my newly organized studio.
