Exchange 3

So, my plan was to finish Ellen's book and my new book for exchange 3 in the weekend and mail Ellen's book today to Anders. But Alas, it wasn't meant to be... there just wasn't enough time.

And also, I really dreaded to start my book - why? at first I couldn't quite say, then I realized that I already started it a few months back, not intending it for an exchange and there was a beginning of a double spread which I just didn't want to work on - it was too old.

Then I decided to actually start a fresh page - the page I usually don't do any work on in the beginning of the book, once that was done, it was a lot easier to get back to the first spread and finish that. So, I still need to complete 2 and a half pages in it before it goes to Molly, but there was a lot of progress made ot day, so I'm pretty happy!

The whole piece is so powerful with the deer in the background, and yet the way it's colored and toned, makes it a subtle effect.

Just lovely as always.

A lot of progress indeed. You sure do draw sensuous ladies. Is it the lips? The hips? Ok, better stop there.

It's all amazing but what stands out to me are those deer in the background. I was so curious to know what kind of messages and meanings deer bring, and what I found was this: gentleness, serenity, innocence. I don't know if that resonates with you at all. But they did seem to add a dimension of serenity to this piece, like in spite of the worries, the deer are saying, It will be alright.
