15 minutes of paradise

My Tub - a whirlpool oasis from the world and all it's aches and pains. I have thought about sketching it everytime I am enveloped in the warm water and bubbles but alas it is tricky to sketch in water ;-) Tonight I searched for a fun subject and ended up in here (hard on the bottom without water). My bathroom is all white with black accents but I needed color - so the walls are it. Pen and watercolor in moleskine

I would love to meet you someday...I think we have lots in common.....like loving bubble baths!!!! I take a bath almost daily...I read there, relax, chat on the phone, etc...This is such a great sketch!!! I want a poster of it to hang above my tub!

This is a nice entry! I like the way you've used the tub to enclose your writing and the little humour down below..."troubles down the drain"...just great!

It made me smile to think of you trying to sit in the bath with water sketching, and then even more at the thought of you trying without water. You must really love your bath!!
