Growth 17

Growth 17
9x6" oil, marker on PC Paintbrush IV manual

Ever since I had been in remission, I have been thinking about a creature to represent new growth. I thought I would try out a little lizard-like character, cheery and fluid and gorgeously-patterned. Some of these creatures can grow back limbs and tails and such, and similarly, as I recover, my fingers seem to be coming back to life. Suddenly I can draw details again. I can feel my designs once more, and draw with my finest pens just for the joy of it.

I love this image, Mary. It is so full of hope and energy. I am glad you are able to "feel" your art, and are drawing with joy once more.
