Don't Worry About Perfect




Take it from a Fox.  

Even these foxes know they will probably never Stick-Fight perfectly but it's not stopping them from heading into the forest, cutting a long thin pole and brushing up on their Martial Arts.




 approx. 5" x 7", a bit of humor from my sketchbook using pen and colored pencil.

Hands 9

A Hand Not Working by Gwen Buchanan



Does blood flow differently through a moving hand... or a hand at rest?
Similarly perhaps, as a mind puzzling out an answer and a mind asleep?


Just wondering....



 This hand fell asleep as it stayed very still... while my other hand worked and searched for lines and shades.  After a while the resting hand felt as if it were someone elses.... something foreign on the end of my arm.

Approx. 5" x 7" conte, charcoal, drawing

Hands 8

Reach 2    by Gwen Buchanan



To reach out with purpose... whether arm's length or far as your mind can fathom...
For that shoulder to grasp, to turn around, to have them see what you see, fully in their mind.
...mind to mind....how much easier it would be.



I sure hope someone is working on this.
