We are blessed with cool rainy weather suitable for walking outside. Seriously, it was great to travel on New Year's without worrying about the weather and to be able to get our exercise outside on January 1 without worrying about ice! That's a big deal!

This weather makes for quite a monochromatic landscape which reminded me of this piece from long ago. Probablty 2002. This is a reductive drawing with charcoal on watercolor paper - 22x30. The title is Imbroglio which is "an intricate or complicated situation." I initially thought of this like a pieta with the one tree embracing the dead one.

Best wishes for 2007. Thanks for reading my blog.

What an excellent composition!! I see the Pieta influence. Very moving.
