|Lillith: Copper, Fabric, Steel Chain, Silver Stars|
"...thoughout the middle ages the influence of the word Layil, Hebrew for "night" gave a new turn to the myth. Lillith is no longer a serpent; she becomes an apparition of the night... In the popular imagination she is a tall woman with long black hair worn loose"

|Chinese Dragon: Copper and Fireworks|
Borges has a lot to say about the Chinese Dragon. There are so many stories, over so much time- several funny anecdotes, several pretty stories, any number of descriptions. Here's the one I like best.
"About the sixth century, Chang Seng-yu executed a wall painting that depicted four dragons. Viewers complained that he had left out their eyes. Annoyed, Chang picked up his brushes again and completed two of the twisted figures. Then, 'the air filled with thunder and lightning, the wall cracked and the Dragons ascended to heaven. But the other two eyeless dragons stayed in place.'"

It happens to the best of us, sometimes. Paying work comes along. As a self supporting artist with a mortgage, I find it almost impossible to turn down paying work- you just never know what next month will look like. The good news is that the last four months have had a whole lot of paying work. The bad news is that the past four months have been very very busy. I am still working on imaginary beings. Lilith is nearly complete, and the Chinese Dragon is progressing nicely. I've got one last big obligation next weekend, and then I hope to be able to devote myself fulltime, or nearly fulltime, to this series.
