Drawing #58 - Flight 146

I'm back from a week of intense classes at the Genealogical Institute of Pittsburgh. I took the one called "Law School for Genealogists" and it was a lot to take in and needs lots of follow up time. Still, I packed the beginnings of two small drawings and nearly finished one. Today I added the final touches. It features collage of old books including a bit with the page of 146 and pieces of a photo of a heron or stork. From those come the name. My largest piece to date is coming along well though I didn't like the size when I began. Then I've got the start on that other small piece. Our artist group has another show opening the 2nd of September and I'd like to have all, or mostly, work not yet exhibited. Enjoy!

Drawing #57 - Sharks May Smile

Sharks may smile...but even worse if they do, don't you think? Dick suggested the image might more resemble a Moray eel, but I was set on sharks. In my youth I had trainees who called me the smiling barracuda, so maybe that is coming around again. I so enjoy seeing what emerges in my drawings! This and a large piece have been in the works for a long time, so I'm really happy this one is ready. Enjoy!

Hope to be back soon with the weekly image pages through June.
