Fading away

When I first moved to Danbury, the ideas for pictures came in a rush. It was a lot like being in a wild, passionate beginning stage of love.  Once the highs and lows have straightened out, you’re either left with a solid, loving friendship..or a lot of bittersweet memories.

As it was, I really was overwhelmed with the physical beauty of being in Connecticut again. Last winter I worked quickly and intensely on lots of drawings…but, just as that love fades, so did the intense impressions.

And so it goes.

Tis Spring

And love is in the air.  Frankly, I can think of nothing more healing than a partner in your life to support you, have fun with, grow old with. Or even a good cry at a romantic movie.

So, here’s the sketch…no name yet.

If this looks a little familiar, it should.  I took my Disco! dancer, and gave her a partner.  For those of you who are new to reading this blog, I’ll repost it.
