EDM #72 Draw somewhere new. Go somewhere new to you and draw what you find. Write about it too. This ceramic egg was resting in the garden at eye level, I guess it was about a foot round, maybe 22 cm diameter. We were visiting the Kaipara Gardens Sculpture Trail on Easter Sunday, it took a little over an hour to walk around and I have a wealth of material for this challenge. We started with a cold drink, signed the release form, listened to the instructions and set off. The squeals of children as they participated in the easter egg hunt (organised for them) was nice to hear, lively children need to be supervised around sculpture, for the need to climb, touch, push and pull is strong, just a giant playground in their eyes. The garden and trees muffled their noise somewhat. The day was overcast and pleasant and the pace was slow as we looked around us.
