"Mom's Kitchen #1"
by Steve Ausherman
sketchbook drawing 2013


I drew this sketch while home over the holidays five months ago. This is the view of my Mom's kitchen and dining room that I took in every time I had a meal as a kid, as this was drawn from "my place" at the table. The hanging phone on the wall and the hum of the fridge. The hutch and the cabinets. Brown wood and white/green linoleum. The large set of kitchen windows is off frame and to my left, illuminating the entire room. Memories of pleasure and pain. Memories of growing up. Memories of food and conversation. Memories of holiday meals. Smell of crock pot cooking down meat. The smells and sounds of home.
