The finished drawing
Samhain, Cavatina, 11/6/2009, pencil on Bristol (smooth) paper, 14 x 11 inches
I finished it finally (started it September 27th)...the "bigger" they are, the longer they take to make, I usually like little 'uns the best, but sometimes a big 'un is right for the time and I was so out of sorts feeling I needed the space to wander so forgive the meandering, aimlessness of it, these drawings are more personal as I work out things, focus, look inward for peace, go with the flow...you have no idea...or maybe you do. I usually name them as pieces of classical music because the lines and shapes remind me of sound...this one reminds of the 5th movement of Beethoven's String Quartet No. 13, Opus 130
(TNUA Concert Hall, Taipei March 21, 2008 Peter Winograd, violin, Laurie Carney, violin, Daniel Avshalomov, viola, Wolfram Koessel, cello)
My father-in-law passed away on November 5th...we see him off tomorrow...a bittersweet time...the Cavatina seems appropriate...
This piece of music also has significance in my novel, The Fractured Hues of White Light, (soon to be released, hopefully before Christmas!)
(Yes, I know...how do you find the time! I just do.)
