Inktober has ended

...but my work on this piece has not. I had a lot going on yesterday and knew I wouldn't be able to work on it then. The days before saw us having a snow storm that knocked out our power and left us with gigantic fallen oak branches to get off the road and cut down for firewood (actually Julien did most of that; I just moved a few small ones). Leaves haven't fallen from the trees and we have had a drought year, so the combination of greater landing area for the wet snow and sapless, fragilized branches was too much for the trees. The roads were (are) a mess all over the area. Another driver and I were stuck on a back road last night, moving branches together, one so big he had to hike to his parents' house to get a chainsaw to take care of it.

But I digress. You don't need my excuses. In any case, I did draw yesterday, so I have successfully completed Inktober, even if I need to do a bit more work on my piece. I did a bit today but didn't photograph it to keep this reference confined to progress made during the Inktober challenge.

This is what I have so far, and since I haven't finished, I don't have to have a nice photo ;) (However, the photo looks blurry now and was not in my photo program :-/ )
