Sketch #3 New Lamp

Jim and I have purchased a new item or two for the house recently, including an antique Japanese jewelry chest (I may open it up and do a sketch of the rows of little drawers inside later) and the (not antique) Tiffany-style, peacock feather patterned lamp.  The coffee table they are perched on is also an antique, and together, the three with the their individual classic details made me absolutely HAVE to draw them.  Fortunately, these are in the bedroom, and I could curl up on the bed and draw.  I almost removed the stack of jeans and pants I've got folded on the table, but decided it made a great, domestic counterpoint, so the composition wouldn't look too much like a furniture store ad.
