Imagine if you will a tucked-away room in an old inn, lined with bookshelves and graced with stuffed chairs and a soft couch or too. A huge fireplace burns in the corner. Flames flicker and bend on the walls around the room, and the crackling fire is warm and hypnotic.
"The Village" is that room, where a community of family and old friends gather to sip hot tea or coffee as they share their ideas and opinions about matters of the day. Some of them weigh in on one of my drawings, eager to express their reactions or emotions. Some bring their own images or written thoughts to share with us.
There are no rules, therefore no criticism or judgement is expressed.
