Lucky Draw

This morning's pen and ink drawing is number eighteen.  Marks and forms on a flat surface have "equivalencies" that may contradict "reality."  The street sign is equivalent to the shadow on the side of a building.  The sky in the background is equivalent to the side of a building in the middle ground, both of which are located at opposite edges of the paper in a tense balance.  A sidewalk shape may be equivalent to a building side shape.  I don't plan that stuff.  I sense it and may highlight it, but I usually only notice it after the fact.

(The location is Douglass and Nevins in Brooklyn)
