Three paintings are still wet, so today I drew the next in the Metamorphoses series, a still life of metal printing plates, movable type, wooden printing blocks, two old leather books and a candle. One of the metal plates is an illustration of a medieval butcher in his shop and is titled 'Blood and Knavery.'
I did a fairly detailed drawing on a toned canvas, gridded with chalk. There is something so calming about drawing.


  1. Hi Virginia,

    In your last excerpt you were in "the zone",
    one of the indications of bliss, or happiness, which I teach. Today you are there again.

    I love your work. It's just super.


  2. Your comments are always so on point. Thank you!
