Everything Old is New Again

What was any art but a mould in which to imprison for a moment the shining elusive element which is life itself - life hurrying past us and running away, too strong to stop, too sweet to lose.

~Willa Cather


Well, no more poison ivy... what better way to celebrate than to get a "new" hand-me-down [read: old] engineering table?  We bought it from a friend who'd kept it in his attic for years, thinking he'd use it someday.  Hopefully history won't be repeating itself here.  I look forward to working with it!  This drawing table's seen better days, but it's still a great work surface.  It looks like the love-child of a big white porcelain board and a beige 60s-era filing cabinet, and it takes up three-quarters of a wall in our spare room.  The tricky part is going to be tearing myself away from my digital artwork to actually go in there and use the drawing table.  The digi-art is just so darn convenient!


But now I can say, "oh well... back to the ol' drawing board!"


Sketchin' around a bit...





"Pink Iris Faery"




"Sunbird", line art...






... and colored sketch.




An unfinished faery series I'm working on,
inspired by JB Monge's work:
"Winter"





"Autumn"





"Spring"
