An Enforced Rest

My paper didn’t get here yesterday, as scheduled.  It’s still in Pennsylvania, somewhere.  Delayed, by weather, I’m assuming, although Fed Ex isn’t really clear about that.

It’s serendipitous.  If I had my paper, I’d probably feel I had to do a big project.  As it is, I’m getting informal drawing practice in.

I’m drawing trees, or more precisely, parts of trees.  I’m working from life, and the light changes far too fast, to draw a whole tree.  So, don’t expect any fantastic drawings of complete trees.  This is just an exercise to sharpen my skills, and leave the whole issue of what to do next. Just leave it.

Trees are abstract in their own ways.  They have a structure, but a very loose, and random one.  It’s a bit like putting together a very complex jig-saw puzzle, fun and frustrating at the same time.

Here’s an example of something I drew a few years ago, that gave me the same feeling.
