Sketches in Sepia

I think I am in love with the color Sepia, so much so I started yet another blog...I know, I need another blog like I need a 3rd arm, but why not?...there's something about the rustic look & feel it gives to the subject matter...it's funny how sometimes the absence of color can truly bring out the beauty of something...well at least I hope to have done that here ;)
