Have Yourself a Merry, Little….thanksgiving
Yes, I’ve been working on cards. Thanksgiving is coming with the whole conflicting attitude…on one hand, the original Thanksgiving story, and the fate of the Native Americans. That’s especially poignant this year, with the protests of the Dakota Pipeline. However, the idea of a day to count the good we have in our lives, and…
In the Details…
So, I’ve settled into a comfortable routine with this drawing. Here’s a progress shot of a detail, Here’s to show you…an image a long time ago, that I’m trying to improve upon. Light through the trees is not particularly a paradise image, but it is hopeful.

Pocket Paradise, 5×7 sketch
