Spring of the eternal youth

This is the line mapping for my next wood engraving. I tried to simplify my original sketch, but I do not think that I know what the simplification means. Now I am engraving this…and the scary thing is I am enjoying the intricate lines.

When I am curving those skinny lines, I think about a lot of things. Most of the time I think about the values and textures. Sometimes I walk down my memory lane and think about people I know and met. It will be fun if I can meet them in the spring of the eternal youth and go over our new path again.
