Avocado 1

Catchy title, huh?

I believe the entire month of July went by without time to create art, to the point where I was dreaming of sketching.
We had a delayed memorial for my mother in law's passing on a day in July that rained three inches, complete with lightning and thunder. Some people experience that almost everyday in summer, but in Southern California it is almost a sure bet it won't rain.....until next February.

So I just found time to sketch this avocado.
He/she/it was very patient with me - taking its time to slowly turn brown.


Charcoal and graphite on Strathmore paper, 8x10", still life. Available


  1. Great portrayal of all the textures and love the dramatic shadow! Don't blame yourself, I think its a month for reflection rather than being creative, or at least that's what I tell myself. : )

    1. Good thought. I'll take "a time of reflection"

  2. It's interesting that that happens - my friend buried her Mum yesterday and it rained and rained. Today we have bright sunshine again.

    The title is cool, Karen, and the drawing - I love drawings - is exquisite!
