I love presents. I love getting them, to be sure, but I probably love giving them more. I love to try and figure out what someone would REALLY like, search all over the world for it, and wrap it perfectly. Big silky ribbons, beautiful boxes, or better yet, a container that can be reused, and occasionally, a card, if it's handmade. ( I don't like to make or give cards or wrappings that will just be thrown away.)
I was so delighted when I found this little writing desk. It looked like a little present box made of wood. For a long while it has served as a repository for all things to do with writing, but I've decided to remake it into my mini drawing studio. I saw it allign perfectly with this shaft of light and think that it will be just the right lighting for drawing.
