The banana and the tea tin played Prince and the Pauper this morning while I was eating breakfast.

Banana and Tea Tin disguised as the other

Drawing before I get down to the business of the day is not just a treat, it’s a necessity.  Working in a sketchbook allows me to experiment with playful ideas without the pressure of creating something marketable.  This morning’s playtime planted the seed for another series of 100 drawings and paintings (in addition to the three series that are waiting for the Trumpet Parts Series to be completed ….. only nine more to go!)

Instead of throwing the die, I stuck with reality for a change.  The tea tin needed to be yellow.
