thank you. i too thought that was a nice touch, lizzy :-)

this next image is totally abysmal.
however, the good thing about drawing a hopeless picture
is that the following one has an excellent chance of being better :)

They're both quite amazing, in fact. Soft expressions. I like your gallery here. Was looking at It last night.

Trying to adjust to the physical pain of coming here, by approaching it in small doses. Leonard always seemed so alive to me here (in the Forum), and now I so acutely feel his absence. The association is so strong. I'm glad to see you here.

I absolutely love this collection of drawings of Leonard Geoffrey, especially the black and white. Just wonderful to have. Thank you :D

it feels nice to know that my efforts are appreciated, cheshire gal. thank you. black and white are my favourite 'colours', if one can call them such. my biggest regret is that i am unable to more frequently create pictures to honour leonard's memory. were inspiration capable of being arrested, instead of merely having its cloak touched as it races past, my hands would be factories producing non-stop images. trying to harness a new idea often seems like a pitiful exercise. even in 'beautiful losers' the question is asked: "is there a needle in the haystack?" well, there is something that causes pain, that's for sure.

Geoffrey, your efforts are indeed appreciated. Could you possibly harness the new idea of creating a drawing with a connection to "Avalanche"?

thank you so much. i will, of course, keep this in mind, but often seem to have little influence in the pictures that appear. let's not worry too much about it, for it is all so impermanent and ephemeral. much gratitude for your message. wishing you a joyous new year, and hope you will occasionally drop by :-)

Loving this picture G. I definitely have a weakness for the black and white silhouettes.

Really like the idea of a 'never ending gallery' of your work.

Wishing you all good things
