I think this place looks peaceful, though I have no idea where it is and what source I used for this drawing. Was I looking at a photograph? Or maybe I put my own colors into someone else’s drawing? Or maybe I made the whole thing up? It doesn’t really matter.
Drawings take on a life of their own. Whenever the artist starts seeing the drawing as simply what it is, then she begins seeing the drawing the way other people see it. I’d love to visit this place. To see the radiance left in the twilight sky that is richly mirrored in the water. It looks so quiet, so clear, so calm. It is dusk or dawn?
