I can’t believe its been a year since I painted these. This year I have been doing mainly pencil drawings. With a little bit of war painting on the side.

Its turkey day here in Canadianada. I’m going to go hang with my kids and grandkids and stuff my face with turkey and various types of pie.

I didn’t think I would make it to another one.

So, Happy Thanksgiving 🙂

Not everyone is as fortunate as we are.

I give thanks for my family.

The link above is to the slideshow of images, my first attempt to make a visual essay. There is an essay from anthropology linked on the right of this page. It has the same title, but the subject is cave painting.

The abstraction of something, is not that thing, this is not a broken femur, although I did the drawing from looking at a broken femur, I abstracted what I was seeing in the lab. But it does suggest violence, of some sort. No matter how realistic the illustration, it is still an abstraction.

For scale, that’s a normal sized coffee cup. I’m still fumbling around with words.
