Grace thinking hard…

a difficult task to figure out...

As has been the usual lately, I am spending my drawing time on Albion. Here is another sneak peak at an image which will be coming in the next couple of weeks.

Unrelated… this recent Cute Overload posting got me smiling this morning!

UPDATE: New poem to accompany the image – thanks Tom!!

Intensely focused on the goal
the wheels of intellect engaged
each new idea tested, rolled
between her fingers, quick and sage.
Perhaps a lever lifting there
would raise it high into the air?
But no! The crushing force will break
the oaken planks of hull and strake!
Some another way to find
fulfilling all the hard constraints
remaining free of failure’s taints
dredging through the dark of mind
to create a truth that’s new
passing down the dark and through

  1. Intensely focused on the goal
    the wheels of intellect engaged
    each new idea tested, rolled
    between her fingers, quick and sage.
    Perhaps a lever lifting there
    would raise it high into the air?
    But no! The crushing force will break
    the oaken planks of hull and strake!
    Some another way to find
    fulfilling all the hard constraints
    remaining free of failure’s taints
    dredging through the dark of mind
    to create a truth that’s new
    passing down the dark and through

    Love this image. You’ve really captured Grace beautifully.

    And I’ve gotta say the cat in the CO link has my deepest sympathies! I’ve felt the same way about humans all too often!
