“I’ve been gambling here abouts
for ten good solid years
If I told you all that went down
it would burn off both your ears…” -Robert Hunter
I laid out another life size hawk in pencil on plywood. Then I saw this tree in my head and heard The Grateful Dead coming through the branches. I tell you if I had a dime for every time that happened I’d own the bank.
When the strings of my heart start to sever
And stones fall from my eyes instead of tears” -Robert Hunter
Trying out a paper thin wood veneer that has an adhesive backing. Supplied to me from my local art supply store to try out. I adhered it to a piece of cold press art board. Gave it the warbler go, and I enjoy the results. It put up with the eraser plenty well. I’m a big fan of cherry lumber’s color and grain.
Once every few pages I like to draw a place I’ve never been. Or could have ever been. Tonight it was this mountain you could find on California’s central coast….with a Michigan jack pine growing on a cliff. And there’s an owl somewhere in there too if I recall correctly.
