Walking in the Maine woods

Walking through the woods to the lake, there is a spot where the ground is covered with a thick soft layer of pines needles from a grove of Eastern White Pines. We can not hear our footsteps and these lovely pine cones are scattered everywhere. I gathered as many as would fit in the hood of my parka.

Portrait of a friend.

This portrait seems so spontaneous and fluid that I wonder how much time you actually spent to achieve that effortless look? I'm in awe.

Wow - I love the portrait! Such a great ink drawing, beautifully colored. And the pages with the pine cones are wonderful - when I blew them up to size I was struck by the looseness of it all - masterful and quite beautiful.
