what I am working on

This is a small painting for a card.

I am going to try again.

About this image: I photographed this tree at Onondaga Lake Park in Liverpool NY. From the photo, I made a pen and ink line drawing, drawing hundreds and hundreds of leaves by hand. I scanned the pen and ink drawing, which was large, and printed 8 3.5 x 5 copies. I hand worked each of those eight with charcoal, chalk, pastels, and acrylics. 12/07

This is pretty. I remeber you made a tree painting for Biker Buddy at Christmas one year, but it wasn't so wintery, was it? Definitely a powerful image to return to.

THANKS--this is ONE small card--the one I sent off earlier today. Each one is different. And because they are small, they look blobby when scanned.
