I have not been quite as active a drawer as I'd like over the past few weeks and months... There's one idea that I've had for a drawing since last summer that I hope to get to before I see someone else's sketch of it and ruin my mental picture. In the fifth Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, there's a scene right near the beginning where Harry is rescued out of his room in the Dursley's house by a bunch of wizards and witches who turn out to members of the "Order of the Phoenix." J. K. Rowling brilliantly describes these wizards as Harry sees them when he comes out the door. They are standing crowded on the staircase and as you read her exquisite writing, you get an incredible mental picture of what they all must look like standing there like that. I hope to draw it from that description and then eventually see my drawing brought to life when they make the fifth movie.

There you have it: one of the goals I hope to achieve before the fifth Harry Potter movie is released. You'll see the picture posted here when I get around to it...

Au revoir pour maintenant, (ttfn)
