One of my favorite objects to use as subject matter to teach basic 2 point perspective in beginning drawing classes is a brown paper bag. Plain. Simple. Ordinary. Yet familiar. And if it has a few wrinkles and the opening is closed & then folded down and it bulges slightly from its hidden contents, it can make a lovely little sketch. And it is a perfect object for practicing perspective drawing since its basic form is the cube(or slice of the cube). It always amazes me how I find Glimpses of His Glory in these most "Plain Jane" objects, and for me, this particular one has a beautiful lesson to share beyond drawing. If we slow down in our fast paced world to take the time to meet and get to know plain, simple, ordinary folks, we discover lovely people. Some may have a few wrinkles from age or a tough life. Some may be the quiet ones who need time before opening up. But if we get the opportunity to see who they are on the inside, just like the paper bag, treasures can be found that might be the nourishment all of us need. Strangers become friends.
"...He had no form or majesty that we should look at Him, and no beauty that we should desire Him." Isaiah 53:2b
