Broken Christmas Ornament : Charcoal Drawing

Name that Sketch : Ornament Every year, without fail, there will be a casualty by the end of Christmas. This broken bauble was actually laying on top of the garbage, when the light caught those weird inner prongs...they twinkled...and winked...and it gained a reprieve.

This charcoal still life drawing is part of the “Carbon Footprints” series
