When you’re not sure what to draw, it’s always fun to draw what you love. Do you love coffee first thing in the morning? Do you love your garden in your backyard? Drawing what you love is not only fun, but commits your love to memory, a memory that can then be shared.

Beyond drawing what you love, what about drawing what those around you love? Michelle Ramsay took up drawing the homes her friends and relatives have lived in, loved, and moved on from as a special gift to them.
