I chose a monochromatic palette for this drawing of my son's baseball mitt.  I wanted it to look rather like an old-fashioned  sepia photograph, so that it would give that feeling of nostalgia.  We moved so often when the children were younger that we had to keep our household goods to a minimum.  The best way to keep those memories alive of treasured childhood items was for me to draw them.  We never knew if the moving vans would lose our packing crates, and so this was my way of making sure we kept those special things.  This piece brings back wonderful memories of playing catch and  Little League.
