A Drawing

I am an artist. All of you, my dear readers, know this. But, sadly, you have seen precious few of my drawings. I decided to do something about that. I couldn't before, seeing as how our scanner was not very good. We have a new, wonderful, scanner now, and it works beautifully! My dear sister, Kae, scanned a few of my pictures for me, cropped out close ups, re-sized them and put them on my computer. For this I am extremely grateful.

I chose to to do this one first, as a sort of a thank-you post for my sister: this is one of her favorite of my drawings. You can click on them to make them larger to get a better look.

It is of a fellow and his friend beside a little waterfall and pool. His name is Ariel, Ariel Anavah. Please don't think of Ariel as a girl's name. It was first masculine, Hebrew, "Lion of God". Anavah is also Hebrew, meaning "meek", for such is the lad. I do not know the name of the girl.

I started the picture on January 16, and probably finished it within the following weeks. I always amused that, since their clothes were so nice, they had gone out for a walk before a feast. Being young and merry folk, this walk broke into a run and she scaled a tree.

Have a wonderful day.
