Out With The Old - In With The New

Out with the old and in with the new year. Another year has gone by and again it is difficult to believe that 365 days have gone by so fast. The drawing above is from several years ago. I did this drawing on the back of an envelope with a ballpoint pen. Just playing around with shapes and this is what I came up with. So, let me try and take this sketch apart for new year's eve: the numbers on the left, 1,2 & 3 and the mask to the right could be arranged to form 2013, if you use your imagination. Art for some of us is our imagination. It is not just what is in front of us, but what doesn't even exist. The cigar is a nice smoke, and represents the celebration of welcoming in the new year, but also remembering the year that just passed. So, now we have a story to go along with the drawing.  Let 2013 be a Healthy, Happy & Creative New Year for you all!
