Some Truth For Today

I need to tell a story. It’s an obsession. Each story is a seed inside of me that starts to grow and grow, like a tumor, and I have to deal with it sooner or later. Why a particular story? I don’t know when I begin. That I learn much later. Over the years I’ve discovered that all the stories I’ve told, all the stories I will ever tell, are connected to me in some way.

Aaaand Dragon Tamer . . . Might Be Done?

I just . . . don't know.  I can't get the colors right - or at least the way I want them - on the computer.

Acrylic, watercolor and pencil on watercolor paper.

An Idea for Address Stamp

Another idea I'm working on, inspired by this stamp.  I thought it might be interesting to use this on postcards I send out as the return address - and just on general correspondence.  Not that I send a lot of letters, but maybe this will encourage me to try . . . We'll see.  Obviously, I've blacked out the address.  I know all of you were just chomping at the bit, hoping to track me down and surprise me this Christmas, but I'm trying to keep my blood pressure down (haha).

The fox/dog/wolf creature is a morin, from my story you can read about here.  I think I'll carve it out myself onto a block of rubber I know I have lying around here somewhere.

And here's the idea for the postcard back:

And here are some ideas for the back of an envelope:

Anyway, if you would let me know what you think, I'd appreciate it!
