Sketch of the Week: Las Vegas lamp

Today's sketch is the result of not knowing what to do with myself when dining out alone:

Typically when I eat out it's in the company of others, where I'm preoccupied with conversation. When I dine alone, I tend to bring a book and read, or in this instance, sketch. On this particular occasion I was dining in the restaurant located in the Plaza Hotel, which has great Victorian decor such as these light fixtures. I was primarily interested in the abstracted shapes that the lamps made when viewed from different angles.
