Drawing Stuff


This is what I look like when giving my sketchbook the ol' stink-eye.  So frustrated drawing right now.



 Hey!  She must be frustrated whilst drawing, too.

It's been a long time since I've sat down and just started drawing with no real purpose in mind, just putting pen to paper with no plans.  I find there's dark stuff coming to the surface and it's starting to lurk in the corners of my paintings.  I don't particularly feel like fighting it either.  Shadow stuff can be powerful, honest stuff. It's harnessing it that's difficult.  These quick sketches don't reflect any of that turmoil, but some of the paintings I've been working on lately...  Whooo, boy.

Beauty mark is such a pretty name for a mole.
