Day 5
Apple Slice

ode to an apple slice, I can not believe how much time I spent on this simple drawing.  Ah, but people wail about that every time they see my quilts.  WOW, How much time did THAT take?!  It doesn't matter, I needed to make it, express something, etc... So I should expect the same with drawing, yes?  I am in awe of people who can quickly sketch something.  I have found that my quick sketches are very different than the ones that I delve into.  Somehow this miraculous process is like being underwater for extended times.  It is quiet, very quiet, and I concentrate so deeply, I forget the world above, like a trance.  Time passes without my awareness as I struggle to capture something, or produce something-a sketch.   Here is today's....I played with shapes, colors, textures on the surface of the apple, shading, and shadows.
