Collections...


I'm not fond of shopping, but I was REALLY needing some new fall stuff...my experiences the last year or so avoiding shopping by ordering online hadn't been a great success, so we hit the thrift stores last weekend.

WOW, FTW!!  I got all this, plus a brown sweater and a blue velour hoodie that wouldn't fit on the page, for just over $25!

Just had to do a Liz Steel and sketch my new wardrobe by way of celebration.  BIG smile...and I'm warm and comfortable, AND they fit.

Give it a try...sketch your clothes, your shoes, a collection of ANYTHING--maybe art supplies, cooking tools, travel kits, books, gardening tools...whatever suits your fancy!

  1. Wow, that is fun. Drawing I mean. I don't like shopping too, except for art supplies. Love this colorful jacket.

  2. Great collection! And what a super shopping score. Each piece looks like it could become a favourite. Thanks too for the reminder of how fun it is to draw collections of things. That gives me an idea. Wouldn't it be neat to do a book of collection sketches from various artists? I seem to have book ideas on the brain these days. Maybe once mine is out of the way I'll ask my friend to consider organizing it. Would you be game?

  3. Thanks, both of you! And yep, I like shopping in art supply stores, just fine...NOT clothes shopping, ick.

    And Ruca, sure! It would be a fun book!
