--- why flowers in a vase? (back on March 13). Here is the original monotype:
I made a color xerox of the print, so that I could play with it without hurting the original. I added a sketch of a French landscape (a very rural place we used to bike, that I have in my mind from 2000). I have many past sketches of it, in varying complexities, as an exercise in perspective: the disappearing road, winding down into a stand of trees. I altered the xerox with pen and colored pencil:
I like the fact that I can see the vase as an object in the center of a small French road ... it offers a kind of continuity and timelessness, I think.
