The drawings above were actually completed last weekend but I am just now getting around to posting them here. They were done with Faber Castell Polychromos colored pencil on Strathmore 500 Bristol.

The snow we had on Wednesday has given way to more appropriate springtime weather and I have been in the mood for some spring cleaning. Dust away those cobwebs and let the fresh air in.

First on the spring cleaning list at our house is replacing a dying computer, that hubby and kiddo use, with the one I'm using now. Which means, of course, that *I* get a new machine. They have been plotting this for some time, I suspect. But I'm not ready. I've been backing up files, just in case you know, and thinking how this little computer and I have been through a lot together. Am I ready to move on to the next, latest model? This one has served me well, we have a bond, we go way back. Even though I will still be able to see it everyday, things just won't be the same.
