Stream by Koon Lake

We found a tiny feeder stream at neaby Koon Lake in Pennsylvania. It was a chance discovery made when my teenage son was kept out of school for a while with a chronic illness - we needed and 'adventure' to cheer us both up. We took plenty of pictures there, and I did this trio of drawings on my favorite toned paper. Just recently we went back to see it in winter, and took more pictures (of course). I started another drawing, because time has been very tight for me, lately, and I can find time to fit drawing into my schedule easier than painting. You'd think that drawing and painting would take about the same mental effort, but for me drawing seems much easier. Also no brushes to clean at the end! Just put the cap back on the pen, set the colored pencil back in the box, and done.

I've been inactive here for a while, because I had trouble logging in - but that seems to have cleared up. Computers are strange, mysterious beasts.

Snow and Ice in Summertime

My favorite time to look at paintings of snow and ice is when it's miserably hot out - and today qualifies!

Shriver's Ridge Sunset

The November sunset view from the ridge. My son was trying to create a downhill mountainbiking trail on this steep ridge, and we were admiring his progress one evening just as the sun was setting. I started the piece and then had to set it aside for a few months, but I managed to finish this fall.

My soul is longing for the secret of the sea, and the heart of the great ocean sends a thrilling pulse through me.

Plan B: There is none. I have no backup. It is hard to accept that for all this planning, there is no contingency, but revenge has never had that luxury. This is the last and only prep/check before going forward. They may not acknowledge good or evil, but that means nothing to those who suffer the consequences. This is for my family. I no longer remember what they sounded like, but I remember all their faces. It is late, but it must be done.
