Old Jars

There are things in every day life we take for granted because growing up they were always there.  I always found my grandmother's empty canning jars fascinating because of how the imperfections distorted everything behind them.  The weird things kids notice but it stuck with me my whole life.  This is a graphite drawing I did a while back to learn the nature of glass.  Glass is a lot harder to draw than I thought it was going to be but I remember how fun it was.  The beauty of art - in an instant it takes me back to being a kid in my grandma's  basement pantry with jars of fruit and vegetables from her garden the previous year and all the empty jars waiting for more.
