I took a short (week long) break from the warbler/raptors project to make a tribute of sorts to one of my favorite books. This landscape is inspired by Richard Brautigan’s “In Watermelon Sugar”. A short story that paints a tragedy with the greatest beauty.
I’ve developed a little habit of only writing the date on an illustration when its finished. I’ll sign my initials when the pen work is done but never date it until its finished. I started this landscape in 2013, but finished the color tonight. So we’ll call it my first of 2014.
My favorite part of 2013 being over is that I don’t have to write the number 13 anymore as it always looks like a “B”.
Happy 2014 and thank you for stopping through to look at my art, and I wish you all the very best.
I think I’ll draw you some birds this year.
