Another sign of spring - sweet onions at the market. I begin to wonder what would happen if I chose no nominal subject for a drawing, but just let the cross-hatching become an end in itself... but part of the fun with pen and ink is the tension between making a representation of what I see and pushing the process towards abstraction.
