REserved!

I’ve been under quarantine, waiting for the results of a COVID-19 test. Bit of a hairy time, but I’m negative.

Which gives me the feeling of the sun shining through. It would anyonej.

I can think of all sorts of songs with lyrics of that…but it suddenly occurred to me: Am I violating copyright doing that?

Best to be safe.

But something I have copyright on is my own work. So, here are some drawings of the sun shining through.

And my most recently finished work it this:

Not surprisingly, this is titled “Reserved”.

Okay, back to the drawing board!

Making Peace with Winter

Hello folks!   I’ve mentioned before about my seasonal depression, and guess what!  It’s nearly winter again.  I did a series of drawings one year, making peace with each month.

For instance, this was “Making Peace with November”.

I believe this one was “Making Peace with January”, but as I look back on my artwork, well, it sometimes is a puzzle to me, what I made when and in what context:

These drawings did work (or maybe it was the Prozac) and I was able to see happiness and beauty in winter.  Or I should say, most of winter.

What still gets to me are the grey dismal days, of dark skies and dirty slush.  A couple of years ago, I tried to make peace with the grey gloom, and came up with this;

People in Danbury like this, because it’s a well known statue, here.  But to me, however, it still looks like a depressingly dull winter day.

But, I still have hope….that I will find some kind of beauty in the winter days.  I have an idea, we shall see if it works out.  After all, some winter days are dramatic, and gorgeous.
