EDM #187 Fan

Funny how a challenge often leads to a memory or perhaps that is part of the 'grand plan'? We are thankful to have AC and with the humidity in New England, but I do love fans.

I recently bought this little old fashioned oscillating fan for my office. As I sketched, I remembered the folded paper fans my grandmother made me during church services.

I like fans too - and I love this one. Your drawing of it is excellent.

Omigosh! I had totally forgotten those paper fans we used to fold when I was a kid in Texas! Came in very handy in all that heat!

Great sketches. Yes, I remember those little fans. For me, being in any enclosed space with lots of other people makes me need air and fans certainly help there.
