EDM 120 - Flashlight


I have a lot of flashlights because I believe you can never have too many. Some are big for manoevering around during power outages or Y2K type apocalypses. Some are small and are used to peer under the couch to rescue all the cat toys that Holly-the-Crash deposited there while we were at work. Some hang off my keychain because you never know when you'll need a light to squint into the dark places at the back of the computer monitor to plug something back in. Some stay in the pocket of my suitcase so I always have a flashlight when I'm in an unfamiliar hotel room. This brilliant yellow beauty is my favorite. It lives in the nightstand beside the bed because it is the one that makes me feel safe. It has a bright bluish white light that comes from a ring of tiny bulbs inside the lens. It's very reliable and big enough that I don't have to search for it when I need it.
I liked drawing this, it was a nice shape and easy to follow lines, and I enjoyed the colors. It's water color and wc pencil, and Pigma micron pen.

Great drawing, Lynn!
I'm on Vancouver island and it was really warm here today, too. I agree - it's so nice to have nice weather!

Great hob on the flashlight. I also enjoy having them around....not sure why, maybe beacuse they bring back childhood memories?

Nice job! They do bring back childhood memories, don't they Ronell? I'm one of those kids that used to read in bed by the light of a flashlight when I was supposed to be asleep!

I'm going to have to draw one of my many unused flashlights. I have them stashed everywhere, in closets, in the trunk of the car, by my bed. I keep thinking I'll use them, but I never do. The batteries die, and then I have a useless flashlight that I never use. But what if the lights go out? LOL, I'd probably light a candle. Anyway, I liked your flashlight, and I plan to explore your blog more.

Cool! I like this a lot! I love flashlights. We get daily summer thunderstorms here in s.w. Florida so the small purse or keychain sized ones are great for when you are, say, in a public bathroom in a store and the lights go out! =:)

This is a really nice painting. I'm thinking I may have to try out one of those micron pens.
