He Drives, I Draw--in December

When it comes to running errands, he drives and I draw. I only need my small sketchbook and a ballpoint pen--very convenient. 
Occasionally, I get bored with the subject of traffic. I've drawn so many cars and taxis from the rear end...but then again, a big truck with a worn out broom stuck into the back corner suddenly catches my attention. You never can tell.

I may add color later, often with colored pencils. 

Sitting in a restaurant is always interesting.

Once in awhile I'll just work in colored pencils--a nice change.

And to show that I've got the holiday spirit, some seasonal colors: The last bowl of pomegranates with clementines (a cousin to tangerines) and navel oranges. All home grown and organic.

May your holidays be filled with beautiful colors 
and delicious fruit!

You grow your own clementines? mmmm - they're my favourite fruit in the winter time here, but of course they have to be imported. Happy Christmas wishes to you and your family Nadia!
