What can I say about these except that I am indulging all of my artistic impulses. I've got to feed the muse!
The first one remained unfinished for a long time. I began the "eruption" part and stopped before it became too regular and did not know what to do next. Then, wouldn't you know, I had a dream. In the dream I drew or made a ruler-straight segment with irregular notches in it. Extending from the segment came a pipe-like structure that curved. I knew I would have to use it somewhere, and last night I realized that this was the place. Then I finished it up.
The second I drew a while back, and resisted coloring it. I still resist. I like it in black and white. I was thinking of my oldest son's laboratory - he's a chemical engineer, working on his doctorate. (Oh, sorry, that sounded like bragging and paternal pride - how on earth did that slip in?!)
