EDM #83 - Erie Canal - A Work in Progress

I must be the world's most infrequent blogger. One post a month! Pathetic! Alright, new year, new commitment to art. And to prove that I'm not doing absolutely nothing here's a sketch I've been working on recently. I took the photograph in August, halfheartedly started it in colored pencils sometime in September, let it languish until this past week when I re-booted it with a .005 Micron pen. You may remember the streetlights from an earlier post. Although, more than likely not as that went up more than 4 months ago!

So, there ya go...now that I've got this half-finished skribble posted I'm hoping it will force me to be more productive (one of my resolutions for this year) and finally finish this sketchbook...which was intended as a Christmas present. Will it become a Valentine's gift? 4th of July? NEXT Christmas? Stay tuned...
