Chaos on my table, chaos in my head. Wanting to find time and space to draw. The world begins to take on the appearance of a pencil drawing as sharp winter light falls on wind twisted trees, making all things monochrome in light and shadow. Only when drawing do I find peace of mind.
So, time to make early new year resolutions. The first, to get a new sketch book and draw something, write something, every day. The second, to finish Ice Bear, stop letting life get in the way of painting, take time back into my own hands and meet the deadline for the next book.
It is out of these two thoughts that the title for this new blogs has grown.
Yesterday I saw a small flock of lapwings, beautiful white against dark smudged sky.
