Hearth Drawings

It was a few years ago that I discovered I could draw on the tiles in front of our woodstove with a piece of charred wood from the stove.

Last night, stoking the woodstove before going to bed, a small piece of what is basically charcoal was laying on the tile hearth.  So I started drawing the things I saw around me.  The woodstove, the windowsill full of plants, my wicker rocker and lamp and the table piled with books.

Like chalk on a real slate blackboard, I love the feel of the soft charcoal on the tiles.  That’s part of what keeps me drawing.
