Illustration Friday: Impossibility
This represents the impossibility of going back to sleep when I wake up at 4:30 a.m. My mind won't shut off--my thoughts and feelings are a tangle. I've read that that's the low point of the day for hormones, and that by 6:30 they should be on a definite upswing, and somehow, just knowing that helps. Even if I don't go back to sleep (occasionally I will), I'll feel much better by the time my alarm goes off at 6:00.
This, by the way, is the picture I made while I was waiting for a part of the first one to dry. For some reason, my pre-mixed (by me) ink wash separated, but I'm really loving the texture of it. (You'll have to click on the image to enlarge it to see the cool texture). It reminds me of what a person (not me) can do with lithography stones.
