It happens and the battle back to normalcy can take a heavy toll. I didn't want to be somber here. I wanted the colors to be bright and pleasant. This is a 6 by 4.25 inch gel pen drawing with color gel and pencil. It is Original Jones Art's attempt to put a positive spin on a disorienting situation that not only affects northwest Austin, Texas but the entire world.

Awesome conceptualization Charles! The colors, the images, proportions and content, all bring together this important point about life. I especially love,..."The Way/The Tao Symbol!"

Of course, there's a long road ahead but humans and nature itself after devastation always find a way to regain equilibrium. Unless, of course, there's a second gigantic meteor. In that case, all bets are off. Hope you and yours are doing great. :) PS: You'll notice he's still a few degrees away from actually achieving his goal, hence the title.
