Hubby and I were out walking and came upon a tree that looked like it had washed out avocados hanging from it. Turns out, it was a mahogany tree. We were awed at the beauty of the tree and the rarity of its wood.
An older woman gave us cuttings from the tree and told us to root them. She told us how old her tree was. I secretly thanked the tree for the cuttings.
I found one of the pods on the ground and it popped open this afternoon, seeds spilling out.
These sketches are part of my morning routine. I do these every morning for my daily warm up, which is similar to the drills that soccer players do everyday for ball control with their feet. My drills are for eye/hand aka “seeing” and the boxes are thinking creatively and drawing spontaeously.
I use the Sktchy App for drawing faces or animals in the vertical sketchbook. In the other sketchbook, I separate the page into boxes and I put something in the boxes every day. Some of the morning routine sketches have turned into full art or illustrations!
