Put Something There

My put something there project found me. I sat down in a restaurant (Macaroni Grille) and I saw that there were crayons sitting on the table. At first, I just thought the crayons were for a kids placemat or something, but then I realized that I was able to draw on the table covering itself. I couldn't pass this up.

I decided to draw something every time I received something that I ordered, be it drink, salad, main course, and dessert. What I drew depended really on the first thing that I felt. It sometimes was a word, maybe a little bit of scribble, and a lot of time it was a picture. When I left the table to leave, I thought about the waiter who will look at this completely covered tablecloth, and I wondered if I left a part of myself at the table.
