A Chinese Deereiss

I did this several weeks ago. It was inspired by a book of traditional Chinese illustrations, primarily of women in nature. My attempt to stay traditional quickly transformed into this. I couldn't stop drawing for practically twenty-four hours, carrying it around with me all day, through class, as i talked to people, just continually adding line and finer and finer detail. I dunno, a day of obsession. And I feel good about it. I wish this would happen to me everyday. I might just have to hunt my friend down for his book so i can return to that blissful, concentrated state of mind.

  1. I composed thirty poems this summer - I know the feeling - happy you had that day of bliss - and wishing you more.
