I tried a few Inktober subjects today before I followed through with this one.
It’s from a photo of me taken at a wedding a few years ago. I am probably
asking my husband not to take the shot, but it seems perfect as a reaction today
to some of the news we're getting that is so over-the-top disturbing.
On a positive note I was inspired to get this drawing done by my friend Liza Hirst who
said that she had drawn her magnificent drawing today of balls of wool because
of me. Thank you Lisa. Your constant support for my work really helps me keep going.
As artists we need this right now. We need our friends to notice our work and help
us keep producing, even when there are so few occasions to show our work publicly,
to see one another, to work together. So much of what we love about being an artist
is not possible right now. That means we have to continue to hold onto the big picture,
staying healthy, and staying safe for the future. One day all of it will happen again.
Until that day, let's meet here in cyberspace, and cheer one another on!
