Random objects usually go on a shelf  in my studio where they pile up as remembrances of people, places, or events. I used one such corner as inspiration for Day 3 of Inktober.

Ink drawing of still life objects

Day 3: Collect

Still life items.

The treasures on this shelf in my studio were given to me by friends, relatives, and former students. 

The oldest item on the shelf is the cloth clown that I got at an art fair 20 years ago! The waving red cat, the blue sparkle cat, the giant black bird, and the can of soup all came from students. Every object here has a story that helps construct my memories.

A trinket from the fair. A little souvenir. Small gifts from friends. Do you have a collection of such things?
