New place

Mostly it doesn't feel so different here from the east coast.  Then, I run into a tree sized cactus (not literally) and I realize how far away I am.  It's a sad and invigorating realization!

Gettin Dark on the West Coast

I've moved myself to Sonoma, CA, but all of my stuff and my car has yet to arrive.  That means that I've had a lot of time to draw. 

The move has certainly affected the content.  My mood and outlook have started fresh on the West Coast.  I find that with sunshine, companionship, and less stress I have oddly been wanting to draw somewhat darker things.  Outer light has exposed inner darkness, and I like it! 

To me, darkness is good if not positive.  Darkness is mystery and depth, seeing life for what it truly is!

Anyway, here's what I've been working on:

Scary tree (Blue Oak) with unknown occupant

After some digital work.  (If you happen to want it on a tee shirt )
 Cunning crow with weirdly romantic lace wings.  On a background of an image of mixing eggshell, cream, and ivory paint.

(Again, if you happen to want it on a tee shirt )

What I'm working on now.  Wilting the wrinkles and lacy edges that occur as the flowers shrivel and petals fall.
