Does Nature ever give you a gift? One special moment, one glimpse of sublime beauty that will last forever? Or God, or Universe, or Krishna etc.?
I had one such moment as I was getting ready to do this particular drawing, of this particular tree:
It was a honeybee, gathering nectar from a maple tree flower. It happened so fast, and then it was gone. Nothing to do with art, really, but I just thought it was something nice to share.
As for art, I started looking at the drawing I’m doing, I realize, it’s going to be a heck of a lot of work.
As this one is, done a long time ago.
Kind of makes me think of other drawing that I sweated blood and tears over.
This was the worst of all time. As a friend said, I was bitching about flowers.
Some of these go way, way back.
As when I lived in NYC. Did I really? Seems unreal now. All of my younger life, I dreamed of living in NYC. I did! Finally! For twenty years. I really had a dream come true!
So, time to roll my sleeves up, and get to work on the Herculean task ahead of me.
