This is two days late AND I’ve had a very busy week and no time to draw. I started my ‘down on the farm’ drawing but it’s far from finished. Alas, I’m posting a couple of older drawings which fulfill the theme. My favorite ones of course are Beach’s donkeys Ticky and Tacky!
I put the “painting” in quotes because it technically is digital art using Procreate, my iPad and Apple Pencil. It is, however, the paintbrush tool instead of the “pencils” I’ve used so far. My “for real” art supplies should be here in five more days!
No new fiction today. My week has been filled with realtors, township supervisors, paperwork and heartburn. I cannot write under the kind of stress I was under this week. However, drawing and painting always soothes my troubled soul, so I escaped to my subterranean lair and picked up my brushes.
This painting is inspired by a photograph of a baobab tree in Zimabwe, taken with long exposure just as the stars were coming out at night.
