This one is a pretty big departure for what I've been doing lately, what do you think?
I'm really enjoying these patterns and loved doing the benday dots, I think you'll be seeing more of them!
I also think today will be a good "document the garden" day.

This short lived bout with the flu then cold (not together, but back to back, weird, right?) had me doodling all the time because I wasn't sleepy the entire time. Now I am chomping down the Ricolas and figuring out the things that work and make sense, vs the things that don't.

i just wanted to let you know that your work has been a huge motivating force for me lately. i normally steer clear of the meticulous, but looking at the beauty and fabulousness of your meticulously wonderful drawings has led me into my own creative adventures as of late.
i just wanted to say thank you for sharing yourself...

Oh man, you can document your garden? Cold, cold, cold here. And snowy.

This piece is really beautiful.

Wow! thanks gals--
I really appreciate your letting me know that, katiedl. Sometimes it's hard to keep pushing forward, through the challenging and just listening to the need and desire to make.
lisa--I definitely think more abstract could be really interesting, but it's also a barrier in my brain that I'm working to break through. perhaps some sort of art-school notion ingrained in there?
Amy--actually there isn't much going on in the garden, but I was hoping to see some garlic/onions/something/anything. I do have some swiss chard that just won't quit, as well as some fennel. And some of the daffodils are blooming!

LOVE this. I'm really into pink right now too. It's all spring's fault. =)
