Here's an update on FSS. I ended up drawing this on clayboard. The plan is to seal it and then do some oil glazing....very subtle since I want the graphite to show through. I promise, I will post the explanation for this piece next time. I may be slow when it comes to art but I'm even slower when it come to the written word.
Speaking of which, I just finished a wonderful little treasure of a book, Keturah and Lord Death by Martine Leavitt. It's a YA novel, not too long with tender, poignant passages strewed throughout with a surprising ending.
