“I prefer drawing to talking. Drawing is faster, and leaves less room for lies.”

 Le Corbusier

While I'm not sure that drawing is faster than talking, for me it is faster than writing, or even texting, and I like that it bypasses linguistic translation.

That's beautiful! I love the fluid movement of the lines. For me, drawing is a slow, meditative process. That's so interesting how each of us approaches our art differently, depending on our personalities. I admire your work very much!

Love your new drawings.How is Bear doing?

Katherine Kean said...

Thank you Loriann!

Bear is doing better than I'd hoped for right now. He tires easily, but has a great appetite - and he's still playful and interested in everything going on.
