I started a little different than usual with a grey fine-lined marker then added wax-based color pencil and then a bit of black gel pen for emphasis. Who says you can't teach an 'older' dog new tricks? Of course, I've noticed that usually it's a matter of self-education via trial and error. This measures 6 by 4.5 inches on heavy bond acid-free paper. Impermanence is another impermanent example of impermanent Original Jones Art beamed to you from impermanent northwest Austin, Texas. Impermanently yours, CJ

Please keep sharing Seems like AW is in decline Fewer posts along the way

Artist Reply: Thanks, John. I don't think I'll change my modus operandus any time soon. I usually upload something new at least 20 plus days out of the month and sometimes more. I have been fortunate enough lately not to have come up against a creative block. One reason is that I make a point to start something without a lot of over-thinking. Once one is engaged, it becomes just another Gordian knot to cut through. Hope all is great with you. :)

I'm always amazed at your many images. This one is great. Do you have a personal favorite?

Artist Reply: I have images that I feel to be transitional, images that I feel iconic or that touch upon or reveal something that I only notice when looking at them after some time has passed. I have in the neighborhood of thirty notebooks full of drawings going back to the 70's. Some I feel are a bit weak or that miss the mark when viewed after the fact but I don't have a definitive list of favorites, Ginger. I did do numerous versions of 'Balancing the Bird' done over several years so I must have been trying to get that one just right. :)
