brilliance beyond

mixed drawing media on black archival paper
11" x 14" (image: 7.5" x 10")


So much work to do and so little time away from my laptop. Solution? Chase Ellen and Donn and, like a lemming, drop off the edge into the abyss that is life without Facebook. But only for a week. I'm not crazy after all!

PS Check out the Owl Box.

Love this. Love, love birch trees. I want this. I take it it's heading to Invermere?
How ya doing sans that addictive beast? DT'ing yet? Having 2 of my favourite people gone from there makes it easier to stay away. Hope we're all very productive.

Thanks for all the positive feedback blog homies. I feel inspired to do another now and since I'm over the initial facebook withdrawal you think I'd make the time for it! You never know...

Love it, the grass looks so rich with the black underneath, great negative spaces to. Do you use paint on the paper along with other materials?

Tracy: It's mostly coloured pencil with a little bit of technical pen and Sharpie. The silvery background was made with a Pilot pen like this: http://www.pilotpen-store.com/product_detail.asp?T1=PIL%20SCS-E

Gorgeous image. Beautifully wrought. Evocative of earthy scents and sun breaking through momentarily between storms.
