In the meantime, here's a drawing for today. I have a thing for pinecones. My basement stash of the little beauties, hauled back from many summer vacations at Lake Tahoe, causes my family to shake their heads and chuckle. But I dug this one out of that stash, and loved really looking at it and drawing it. Pinecones, like most forms in nature, are amazing, elegant structures. Enjoy...I'm off to open that first door on this year's advent calendar!
