The joy of creating a specialized gift for a loved one.
Gift giving time has always been a challenge for me. I am not a shopper and I don’t like risking giving something that the person might not like and that will add clutter to their environment. Creating a little drawing or painting often resolves that conflict for me. Even if the gift is not something the person likes very much, it is clear that I had them in mind and made the time to create something unique for them.
My Dad’s loving companion, Jane, travels around the country playing tennis. I know very little about tennis. Thanks to the internet I was able to view a series of photographs that illustrated the “Top Spin Slice Power First Serve”.
I used my Cross Fountain Pen to draw this gesture line drawing.
