I am building a virtual world for you. I'm busier than I've been in years, mostly volunteer, all widow-related (plus keeping kirche, kuchen und kunder together).
But I took nearly ten hours last week — two perfectly good school days — to draw this little gravatar of a mermaid. Drawn back to art, to color, to translating what I want to something you can see. HOURS. Tinker, tinker, pixel, pick, version after version, judgment after moment after hour.
