The new year & its promises :: La nouvelle année & ses promesses

Drawing is the language that enables men of the Ice Age, in the caves at Altamira in Spain and Lascaux in France, to speak to us, today, and to the men of the hundredth century, with perfect clarity. Drawing is the universal language. Draughtsmen communicate instantly and effectively with anyone, anywhere in any time.
 Edgar A. Whitney

It is funny how I have been drawing for many years and yet, had never drawn my piano, even though it has accompanied me for decades. One of my promises for this new year is to draw more than last year, draw everything and draw everywhere, frequently. -)

C’est drôle que mon piano m’accompagne depuis des décennies dans toutes les maisons que j’ai eues et que je ne l’ai jamais dessiné. Une des promesses que je me fais pour cette nouvelle année est de dessiner plus… de dessiner tout, dessiner partout et dessiner souvent. -)
