On and Off EDM # 136


This is something that I turn on and off more frequently than anything else I could think of. I like the graceful, swooping lines of this faucet set. We bought it when we first moved into the house, and a few years ago when we renovated, we decided to keep it because we still liked it. The counter and backsplash are new. As I was drawing this yesterday afternoon, I noticed that I could see, faintly out of focus, the pink portulacca and calibrachoa that were in the window box outside. So I added them in as well. This morning when I opened the blinds, I saw that the frost last night was so deep that they succumbed to frostbite. Now I'm extra glad that I added them in.

Lovely sketch, Lynn....pretty colours but such a shame about the frostbite getting the plants overnight.

Beautiful sketch - that backsplash is especially lovely. You must love being in your *new* kitchen.

I like how this has such a light, fresh, airy feel- and I like how you've only outlined the sink and faucets. Nice take on the On-Off challenge!
