I think I'm back on track ... at least the desire is there ;) !!
These trees are just 2 of 6 that I will be drawing in ink on a very latge, very white, blank, 14"x17" pce of drawing paper. I'm excited, hence the preview of trees.
Did I mention ? did you know ? how much I like black & white ? My client wants to represent herself and her 5 sisters as a row of trees, in B/W, with smaller, young trees growing up, around and between them, representing their offspring ;). She has been a doll waiting on me and now is the time.
It's been a long dry spell this time ... almost 8 mos. of very little creative energy !!! Very Scary !
I know that one of the biggest reasons has been my eyes ... I have been seeing an opthamologist for 2 years and after all the 'try this, don't do that, 'ctscan sees nothing wrong behind the eye', etc., etc., I finally took the bull by the horns, and got on the internet, typed in Rheumatoid Arthritis & dry eyes and came up Sjogrens Syndrome (pronounced Showgrins) ! Anybody ever heard of this ?? There is an mazing number of people affected by this, mainly women. And no one doing research on it ! The only suggestion is to relieve symptoms with artificial tears :(. I have hopes pinned on getting an appointment with an eye institute soon. Surely there will be someone there who has more knowledge about this.
Well, I finally get around to posting a little news as I prepare for a few more house-sitting jobs ... should have that drawing done by the beginning of April :)
Thank you to all of you who still respond to my paltry posts ... I hope to pay more attention and I plan to get reading what you are all up to in 2017 ;)
