Sit with me a while and let me listen ...

I was looking for some textured paper to do a pen and ink drawing on, found some old cardboard off a box and sketched instead...

I am a firm believer in "use what you have at hand" and this sketch proves my point. Very well done!

Wow... if you hadn't left the raw edges exposed I would not have believed that was cardboard. Great drawing! Now to find me some cardboard...

When I read your EDM post, I was wondering what kind of cardboard it was... question answered! What a great drawing, and I really like how you pulled away some of the top paper to expose the corrugation. nancy

Thanks for stopping by at my blog, Steve, I've been missing the art world, but just have so much going on right now. This is truly beautiful, I love, love, LOVE the raw edge combined with the drawing - BEAUTIFUL!

Hope all is well in your valley.
