The Irony of Catastrophe
      #4580601 - 05/14/11 12:34 AM

The wordpress blog link under my signature has a sketch of a tranquil dawn on the first day of the Midsouth Stargaze at French Camp Mississippi. The calm was deceptive, but the scene was nonetheless beautiful. The story and sketch are at the top of the blog.

I'm always impressed by the framework (is that the good word?) of your sketches. Just funny to use a drop to make an insert! I like it.

i feel bad for all the devastation, you managed to make a very strong drawing, accompanied by the story. the dawn colours are spot on, it looks calm and peacefull...

Roland,

Love the sketch. The Moon in a tear drop totally appropriate.
My heart goes out to all those in natural disasters, I have first hand experience surviving an F-4 tornado I know that terror.

Roland,

A beautiful and peaceful scene of the morning sky at the stargaze. Scenes such as this one make us appreciate what we have. We must be prepared at all times. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Carlos

Thank you Carlos, Frank, and Kris. Glad you enjoyed it. Another version of the story with more sketches is on our home-based site.
