2017 Has Been My Year Of Grieving

You may have noticed that I haven’t been writing a lot of blog posts this past year. I’ve still been doing art, though not as much as usual. Instead, I’ve been doing a lot of personal grieving from the loss of some very dear loved ones to problems with my near vision that three eye operations have yet to improve.

The leaf of the ginkgo tree symbolizes longevity. I used gold leaf on 4″ square board. I lettered “longevity” using a white gel pen.

When you add that to traveling a good part of the year in a 19.5′ van, you may understand why my blogs have been few and far between. Now, however, I feel rested and ready to put more time into my blogging again.

This was a small little practice piece I did while practicing my Romans. The red is simply red colored pencil.

The photos here are some of the art I’ve done in the past 6 months. I’ll post more detailed information about some of them in future blog posts.

Looking forward to an invigorating and art filled 2018, Candy
