people and things I have lost.

My first thought with the prompt was quite somber, thinking about the feeling of lost.
But as the weekend came and went, my idea evolved. 

Trivial items came to mind and significant losses of people I have loved.
The illustration includes both with items representing all of those people and things I have lost. 

I am looking forward to seeing how others dealt with this topic, I have not yet visited any IF blogs.

I had considered a tightrope walker in my personal balance series (see my other blog)
I hadn't yet attempted it and thought this topic was a perfect opportunity.

IF: Refresh

IF: Refresh....
6.5 x 10 inches (Ink and Colored Pencil on toned paper)
I thought about using the whale image that is in process and another post here on this blog, but I am trying to create new work for these weekly challenges.  So here it is Refresh.  (I remember times when my toddler son would choose a 5 gal bucket over the pool in the backyard for a quick refresh and myself noticing that warning on every bucket that we always chose to ignore, although I never let him dive in, per the warning:)
