painting in circles...

Sometimes, it's nice to just turn off the computer for a few days, get the brushes out, and lose myself in a painting. Uninterrupted time is precious, and the absolute pleasure that comes with it reminds me to make room for this more often. 

I've been watching some really moving dance performances of Stravinsky's 'Rite of Spring' recently, and I found it creeping into this piece as I considered cycles, rebirth, ritual...

My piece can be viewed at the Nook Holiday Show december 6-7, as 50 illustrators gather under one roof to share their recent work.
