student papers, and cleaning up the house. Tonight I worked
on a painting I started a couple of years ago, but could
not get it to come together. In a musky drawer in the basement I found
this pastel and conté drawing I did in university. I liked the mood.
Plus I was happy to see how well I could draw back then. It seems
fitting when you're looking back over the year to give thanks
for all that happened, to look back on your life too and give thanks
for the fine gifts you've been blessed with in terms of health
and happiness. In my case making art has always been a pleasure,
and I'm grateful to my parents for encouraging me to go to art
Have a reflecting-on-past-and-present-pleasures day.
