New Drawings

Spring will be here soon

Just look into the future with hope and wonder

Those were done today as a sketch to a submission I want to make for a group show in a gallery I really like in Williamsburg, though the images I had in mind are totally different then those, it's still nice to see that the composition I had in mind works and so now, I can start working on a 4 times larger version of this (scary, but what can you do).

Those sketches were supposed to be a quicky drawing, in fact, I originally prepared 4 surfaces and not just 2, pretty positive I can finish all of them tonight, however, it turned out to be far more time consuming and detailed work then I expected it to be and so, only 2 done so far.

The past month of my life felt very dark with my father in law in the hospital going through massive cancer treatments and a stem cell transplant. Yesterday we heard the good news that he'll probably be going home after the weekend! I think that a part of what this drawing is all about is having this great ray of hope cutting though the darkness.

These are so beautiful in their own right, but the sentiment makes them even more beautiful and the feelings behind the sentiment makes it something really special.

I'm so glad that Ned's dad is doing well. And I'm really happy that it's a warm sunny day today and spring is in the air.

I love your art so much! Since the first time I saw it I am totally addicted to saying what else you are coming up with. :)
These are no exception and I hope everything will get better for you and your family soon!

Beautiful work-- both the illustrations and your lettering. Best wishes for your father in law.
