I was mucking around trying to draw burning matches with oil pastel and chalk pastel, but it wasn't really working. So, I thought I might do something a bit different, and did this sketch on a bit of newspaper. I liked it much better than my pastel efforts.
My husband also had an idea for a drawing. His idea was to draw a "match made in heaven" - two winged and haloed matches looking lovingly at each other. He particularly likes the idea because we are both red-heads. But he refused to do it himself ("too cute"). He likes to pretend he is very tough. Anyway, on his urging, I drew it for him.
The other idea which came into my head with "match" was this funny little cartoon (only took me a minute to do).
