“Sitting through a half hour of church service on Christmas Eve.”
This was one of the most anxious yet exciting times for me during Christmas. Although I couldn’t wait for that last bit of service when we’d all light candles and sing “Silent Night”, it all formed an endearing memory for me. Going to the church was all part of the tradition, whether the excitement of pending holiday festivities made me squirm in my seat or not. I liked going to the Methodist church in our neighborhood. It was within walking distance (but not when it was snowing). Also the parking lot, when it was empty, made for an excellent place to bike ride or take a ride in the metal Radio Flyer wagon we had. Also liked hearing the church bells.
So anyway, about the drawing. The first stained glass window design was supposed to be a spiritual figure, but it turned out too blobbish. So I just made the window into a mosaic stained glass.
While filling in most of those shapes with color, I realized why I got those colored pens so cheap – because most of them don’t work. So I went to Walmart and bought a nice set of 72…that’s right, 72 colored pencils! Not a bad little price, either! Then I bought two little pencil sharpeners; one green, the other blue. I’ll take the green sharpener to work with me since it’ll coordinate with my green stapler. The blue one will coordinate with my blue stapler at homebase. Got that? All for the sake of art.
