EDM - Doorknob challenge


It’s neverending. I don’t know how everyone else keeps up with all the chores and repair jobs that need to be done. I think I’d rather draw the house collapsing around me.

Julie - that's a super little doorknob and a wonderful rendering of it! And I agree: I would MUCH rather draw the darn house collapsing around me as you said.

Wow! that's fantastic...I hate repair work too, and that includes cleaning...one of those necessary evils!

The swirl of writing is like the neverending chaos that knocked the knob off--and it lies there in exquisite beauty. Gorgeous!

Lin, I believe there is at least one road in St Albans that has the word Oxford in it. I'll have to investigate to see if there are some treasures there.
I see there are a few of you that feel the same as I do about sorting out the chaos. I love what you've said nita about 'the neverending chaos knocking the knob off'. I think it was the avalanche of children tumbling through the front door at the end of the school day!

gosh, the detail! This is wonderful! I love how you've got the shadow and the lighting and the detail.

I hope you get to Oxford one day, even if it is in 20 years!
