The complications of life sometime insinuate themselves to such an extent, they take center stage and relegate all else to the wings. Such has occurred over these last weeks and I have been away from the studio and the drawing board for far too long. This work, which was started back in mid January, finally saw the last pencil strokes this afternoon which brought it to its conclusion. The work is just over 7" x 11". I hope a more routine work schedule will, once again, allow me to focus on those aspects of life that bring me the most joy . . . work, studio time and releasing the creative juices that seem to have, of late, been difficult to grasp.
