While visiting Mike in Florida, I was often the first to awaken, allowing me time to capture the simplicity of morning light upon the pedestal table.

Tablecloth draped on pedestal table

I am definitely a beer snob.  Sorry folks, but I can’t imagine drinking Budweiser.  I like a flavorful ale.  However, the red box was the perfect element to bring life to an otherwise tame color scheme.  The low key value of the pure red also expanded the value range of the little sketch, adding not only color but dimension.

Pencil Sketch of draped table

I posted this pencil sketch earlier from my phone.  This is the scanned version.  I only wish the pedestal was centered properly under the table top.  I got carried away with the pencil marks before I realized my mistake.
