Abstract Three -Creative Inspiration Comes From an Uncomfortable Condition

Traveling, I travel across the floor. Thinking of  the look of a rubbing from an french antique metal chair ( you know, the ones with lots of uniform holes punched out on the seat) I started this sketch making freehand circles with a graphite pencil. The circles represent steps. Do you ever wake up in the very early morning and pace back and forth? I do. So I draw until I get sleepy, then go back to bed. I tore up one of my drawings and glued it in place lining it up with marks from the drawing below. The title, Night Walkers, came from the title of a publication put out by the Restless Legs Syndrome Foundation.
