Thought and Desire


I have been working on this for a while, being both fond of ravens and of Norse Myths.  Hugin sits in front of Munin, who makes his presence known.  They are perched on a picture stone, this one being based on a Gotland stone that tells the story of Thor.  I don't think the runes will make much sense as I didn't copy them accurately.  Behind the birds is the beginning of a Yew tree, to represent Odin.
There is something very meditative in using just a pencil (propelling pencil with HB and 2B leads).
