Shells on the window sill
My mother always had shells that she'd collected on various beaches on her window sill in Austin. I followed that practice on my window sills: in Statesboro, GA, Clemson, SC, and now in Asheville, NC.
I've added beach stones to the theme (in various copper saucepans, wooden bowls, etc. around the house) , but still have her vintage glass holders, perhaps from her mother (Mom had sand and shells in this one on her Austin window sill).

Interrupted in my drawing by needing to pick up my car (from its winterizing check-up prior to our January Quebec adventure), I finished it in lamp light.
I'd forgotten I had a working small lamp on my studio desk. Its burnt-out incandescent bulb was replaced by a new LED one this evening. A bit brighter, but still nice.
