As Promised…And Now I’ll Shut Up About It

I kept promising an event at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Danbury, and darned if it wasn’t today.  I was there.  Met a lot of very nice people, gave out some business cards.  I had to take my old New York City business cards and cross out the address, and then write in “Danbury”.  Something very ominous and final about that act.  Even though my night time dreams are mostly set in the Big Apple, my day time reality is really, really gone from there…most probably forever.

By the way, does anyone really know why New York City is called the “Big Apple”?  I’ll be damned if I know.  Once I tried looking it up on the omniscient site Google, and no, Google had conflicting reports and reasons.  So, unless some bolt of lightning strikes with the right answer, I guess I’ll never know.

So, here’s my set up at the show:

Also, in the past week, I had the sad task of drawing a sympathy card for a friend of a friend.  Somehow, it does make a difference to make a drawing sometimes, even if for a bright light in a dark time:

And now, I can start to spend my time going back to the art I want to do.  So, for instance, there’s this remake I wanted to do..remember my Rainbow?  The one I decided was my worst piece of 2015?  I hope to make improvements on it.  I was so decidedly overconfident and cocky while I was drawing it..and you know what they say about pride.

So, here’s the revisit…not sure how I’m going to redo it, but I do know:

I’m going to get small.

I Mean, REALLY, Now….

I’m working on items for the Winter Boutique again, but this time, a little better rested.  So, for serious..here’s the first Holiday Card I’ve done…5 by 7 inches.  It’s pretty neutral in the way it presents a holiday.  It can be either Christmas or Pagan Yule.  I’m going to try to stick with as many winter landscape ideas as possible, because, no matter what religion you are (or aren’t), it’s going to be winter in the Northern Hemisphere in December.  So, here ’tis….

And I’ve scrounged some items…notice I didn’t say Scrooge, I said scrounge.  I’ve put a copy of one of my cat drawings on a suncatcher, and it came out halfway decently.  This is the drawing, the suncatcher itself, is hard to photograph….

But for you cat lovers, I’m sure you don’t mind revisiting a young cat with yarn:

I’m having fun with the pressure off…just coming up with stuff to sell.
