So, hmm. 

Here is a picture for you. I made it!

Sixth Avenue, Park Slope

(Thank you, all, for your thoughtful and 99.9% non-hurtful responses to my last post. It's been difficult to respond to all the comments or emails, I'm a little overwhelmed, and I'm feeling the need to hermitize--is that a word? that's not a word--for a bit. I'm just going to get into my blanket fort, over here. Which is not to shut you guys up. Let the conversation continue! I'm just going to maybe read Cute Overload for a while, as I do, while re-contemplating daily psychotherapy.)

I always take a photo of something I want to draw and then sketch it at home, because how do people sketch things out in the world? At least around here, the minute you pause to gaze artily at something you know someone's going to sidle up to you and watch you at work. Which, look, this is not a spectator sport. If you watch me draw I'm going to become terribly self-conscious and feel compelled to just scrawl something horrible all over it, like a cartoon penis. A big penis coming out of a building like an awful chimney!

(Oh, now I'm writing about penises again. Goddammit.)

In conclusion, here is a boxer puppy, meeting some cows.

I love your writing, but I'm de-lurking to say WOW I love your drawing/painting, too! You have amazing creativity (my 19-year-old daughter has something similar, but she sure doesn't get it from me). More please!

My stars and garters, I LOVE your art!! And I'm so fascinated by it!! So if you want to just hide under the blanket and draw/paint/whatever and then pop out here and there to post it, well, that'd be swell for me. :)

De-lurking to profess adoration for your watercolor and your writing.

RE: your previous post...shared it on FB and twitter b/c it's a great read with such an important message.

Please do hermitize...cocoon... Quite understandable! Back to lurking now. Aloha!

Alice, thank goodness we share the interesting history of panic, anxiety, depression because woman you can't be all AWESOME GODDESS at writing, drawing, humor, loving.

Thank God, because perfection...it's just too much of a marvel for me.

The picture is incredible, you are very talented...I want to know more about when you draw, and what you do with these. They're lovely.

You are so artistic! Sometimes we paint what we feel and what we feel is the output of it. Good thing, there are things like these to express it.
