One woman, one day, one art bag, one bench, one sketch = one obsession…
I seem to have taken something ordinary and made it my own. What started out as something to force me to take a proper lunch break has turned into a bit of an obsession on benches and sketches of the views from said benches.
Like I say, I am only one woman who, one day, took out her art bag during one lunch break, I sat on one bench and became obsessed. I’m sure it won’t last but, for now, I’m thoroughly enjoying it and now we’re over halfway through these AtoZ posts I hope you’ve been enjoying my obsession for sketching too.
Actually I have three art bags but I only use one at a time.
If you’ve been reading these AtoZ’s you’ll know there’s approximately 143+ more than one bench in Peterborough along my regular routes where I sketch.
My AtoZ Blogging Challenge is all about sketches I’ve done this past year and some benches I’ve met along the way. Most but not all of the sketches were done from benches during my walk to work and around town where I shop.
If you’ve enjoyed reading this post why not see what others are doing too during 2015 AtoZ Blogging Challenge.
J here, stopping by from the #atozchallenge
Great post. Another beautiful sketch. I’m looking forward to more. Congratulations on making it past the first half.
Thanks! I almost forgot to finish Q. Remembered it wasn’t finished just in time Phew.. catching up on commenting and comments seems harder this year as I didn’t have as many prescheduled as I usually do. It’s good and sad that we’re over half way.
Wow, this is a beautiful sketch of something that could be so ordinary. Wonderful that you saw it as extraordinary.
Good luck with the A to Z Challenge!

Thanks. I didn’t see benches as extraordinary till I focused and looked at them and, maybe, got a little obsessed by them.
Thanks for popping by and huge thanks for Co-Hosting such a great challenge. I appreciate all the hard work you put in so we can have some blogging fun.
It’s a really unique sort of obsession to have, but it’s really interesting for those of us who are reading your blog and that you’re sharing your sketches. Keep going with it. 🙂
Thanks for sticking by me! I’ve been reading some that focussed on odd and beginning to realise I might have a bit of oddness/uniqueness about me.. Can’t stop now. 🙂
Championing the humble bench, I love it! Just catching up on the #AtoZChallenge after my Easter holiday… see you later 😉
Thanks! I’m working my way gradually thorough blogs I expected to be on top of and completely understand that feeling. Sooo glad you were able to pop in x
