Garage Scene

This photo is of a corner in my garage. You can’t get more everyday life than that, can you?

I liked the look of this still life arrangement and I did a pen drawing of it. It was done in July, 2021 and is in my 8″ x 8″ sketchbook.

          It’s a 1950’s split level so the garage is supposedly 2 cars but really 1.5, we fit one car in there but generally don’t bother putting them in at all. The carpet is only 2 ft by 3 ft and is by the door into the house.

    I like that you called this a still life and you are right to call it that. A far cry from the typical fruit and flower arrangements but so much more realistic of what our homes look like.

      Yes, and you know what, there is this kind of scene everywhere you look, which makes it nice when you want to find something to draw or paint – sometimes it is right under your nose…

      Thank you. I saw this little tableau and had to get it captured. I’m not able to draw much right now, I can’t see well enough, but on the other hand, this picture makes me want to take pen and hand and just enjoy doing it, even if the results are cockeyed (I have some drawings done since the problems started I am posting in December and you will see what I mean…) But anyway, I think this scene is just what I like about this world we live in – there is beauty in everything. Everywhere. If we can find it. Or if it can find us.

      Thank you. I believe with all my heart that everything has beauty. Not always easily seen, and sometimes, it is part of what is otherwise dangerous, and yet – there is a little spark in everything, some detail, some aspect. I try to look for it if I can manage it (which is not always possible either, is it?)

        I completely agree. Even if it’s just a part of the thing we are observing, or a different view point, or medium. Just like you have demonstrated. Perhaps it’s not always possible by the individual, (you or I), but it probably is by someone.
