a tree study

I am having way too much fun making these abstract drawings. Today I came home after working a steady day at the cafe (Christmas coffee for EVERYBODY!) and dove right into a fresh page of my sketchbook. I still have this 'thing' where I make 2 different ones at the same time instead of one big one on both open pages. I'll get there with my bravery in making spontaneous marks. Heck, I went skating today for the first time in 22 years, so those blank pages got nothing on me now!

I am going to make a gallery of them and load up the photos of my favorite ones so far. Or all of them, maybe. Here is the inspiration and outcome of the 2nd one I made today. (I posted the first one to Instagram already.)
