Austerity

austerity s

complete failure.
who quantifies the human cost?
a factor of none.

I finished my first “in the news” sketchbook, and begin this second one also with hands.  I can’t remember the news story that prompted the first photo/drawing, but, as always, human hands are expressive of many things.

unbound s

I want to pick up
my life, to hold everything,
unbound by your rules

      Yes, it’s satisfying. I’ve been just sketching what’s around and about everyday, quick sketches, so at least I feel like I’m doing something. Cannot get myself together to paint…
